+Outstanding Issues +==================
+* Require C99, so we can use // comments, named initializers, declare variables
- without introducing a new scope, among other benefits.
gcc only, in other words ?
+* Remove support for old systems, including: OS2, BeOS, RISCOS, (SGI) Irix, Tru64
what's old with tru64 ? it's not that uncommon in places where Python has a strong presence, you can still buy AXP hardware throughout 2006, and HP says they'll keep developing and supporting the software platform at least through 2011.
