It'd be worthy of fixing in 2.6 since the module exists. Though honestly... who cares about Irix?
I'm reviewing http://bugs.python.org/issue2591, which is marked as
'security' because it is a potential buffer overflow. almodule.c has
been dropped in py3k, so my impulse is to close the bug as "won't fix".
But I thought I should check in to find out what the policy is before
doing that since it is a 'security' bug.
