Good evening everybody!
I like to run the 2to3 tool with raise and except fixers over the 2.6 sources. The raise fixer changes "raise Exception, msg" to "raise Exception(msg)" and the except fixer replaces "except Exception, err" by "except Exception as err". In my humble opinion the Python stdlib should give proper examples how write good code.
During the migration period from the 2.x series to 3.x we have two obvious ways to write code. Let's stick to the new and preferred way.
Oh and please use the new syntax for patches, too. It makes my job with svnmerge a little bit easier.
