Correction: Zope's Interface package has been around since 2002; PEAK's 
originated in 2003.  I'd say those count as both "workable form" and "for 
years".  :)

You probably mean 2.2, but I'm fairly certain that the earliest Interface 
packages implemented by Jim Fulton actually predated Python 2.2, using a 
different metaclass hook mechanism.
