If someone knows how to get the original Usenet messages from what Google published, let me know.
I don't have those, but I do have a copy of Python 0.9.1 with unmangled scripts.
$ ls -lh Python-0.9.1.tar.gz -rwxr-xr-x 1 steve steve 379K Nov 5 2009 Python-0.9.1.tar.gz
I don't remember where I got it from, but it compiled on CentOS release 5.11, I'm not sure if it will compile on anything newer.
