Hi pypy-dev, 

for various reasons it seems like a good idea to 
move to a slightly modified directory structure 
regarding our "compat 2.3.4 library" and tests. 
The idea is to put the completely unmodified 
standard python library into: 


and put test-wrapping configuration/hacks etc.pp. 
in lib/ instead of modifying an otherwise unmodified 

The changed tests and library modules we have in pypy/lib 
could reside where they are now although it might be 
clearer to put them into 


instead. This is probably a question of how version
independent our modifications really are. 

Today we also changed the way compliance tests are run (by
default, you get the old behaviour with '-E') because we want
to move on with getting a complete overview of test failures.
If you run py.test (or pypy/test_all.py) in the python-2.3.4
library then your test runs will get recorded into a new
'result' directory. 

With the above proposed location i would suggest
to put this result directory into: 


If there are no objections (even better: agreement :-) 
i am doing that this night or tomorrow.
