That's why PythonLabs hasn't done much of anything on Python since 2.2 was released <wink>.
algorithm relying on the above scheme. Perhaps we should simply start counting in increments of 10 from now on ?!
Why 10? I'd rather see it incremented by 1. If you respond that you want to make room for more hacks akin to -U, my response would be that's exactly what I want to prevent by blessing 1 <0.4 wink>.
