Yury, you are really the crazy hacker. Not sure tricks with patching bytecode etc are good for standard library.
I know that I sort of created an image for myself of "a guy who solves any problem by patching opcodes on live code", but don't worry, I'll never ever recommend such solutions for stdlib/python :) This is, however, a nice technique to rapidly prototype and test interesting ideas. - Yury
