Come on guys, we're supposed to be a friendly helpful group here - if
a little tough around the edges.
Craig, you're on the bleeding edge trying to get a Py3K install built
and running.  I don't know if anyone here is also attempting that, but
I thing what Pete is saying is that this early in the cycle bad
scripts are part of the process.  If you need to get something 3.0
ready you might try running the Windows pre-build under Wine, or
(gasp) on a Windoze box.
