major gripe to -dev: a 'make install' of the full cvs tree should not be required to test that some changes to existing .py files that pass their tests (in this case they -are- the tests) are ok to check in.
You actually don't have to. If you execute the interpreter that is built in your cvs checkout it will use the stdlib files as found in your cvs tree. So if you are in your cvs checkout, ``./python.exe <whatever>`` will actually execute using the code in the cvs checkout itself.
