What precisely makes these changes uncontroversial? The fact that no controversion has been developed?
My attempt at time-travel was unsuccessful, sorry. :-)
I've looked over the patch and think most of it should wait until Py2.5. Refactorings of this magnitude should be done early in the development cycle to allow time to discover and fix issues if something gets mucked up.
Hadn't realised how late it was.
A couple of the doc changes should probably go in for Py2.4b2 (a note on thread safety and an example of how to display debugging information). If no one objects, I'll put those in after the beta. Also there is a minor readability fix (using escape sequences) for the test suite that is reasonable for Py2.4.
