As teh reporter of that bug I should like to say in Victor's, Antoine's and David's support that the module is so broken without this patch that the module should not really have been included in a production release.
Even if the current patch is broken, I believe the results of using that code would be less negative than the results of using the module from the previous release.

this is just a heads-up that I'll be freezing py3k for the rc2 release in a bit less than 48 hours -- Sunday morning in CET.
Please get all changes that you already know are necessary reviewed and committed *before* that: the goal is zero commits between rc2 and final (although I know it's unlikely to be reached) -- or rather the necessity of an rc3 depends on how stable rc2 proves to be.
What about the mailbox module? R. David Murray, Antoine Pitrou, I (and others) worked on a patch to fix this module (which is "partially broken" in Python 3).
It's an huge patch, and it's already the 3rd version. Is it too late for such change?
