Python scripts are usually so good looking that no beautification is
required.  However, from time to time, it may be necessary to alter
the style to conform to changing standards.  This script converts
programs in a consistent way.  It abstracts the pretty presentation of
the symbolic code from the humdrum process of writing it and getting
it to work.

This is an upgrade.  There was a big problem with earlier versions:
Canonical values were substituted for strings and numbers.  For
example, decimal integers were substituted for hexadecimal, and
escaped strings for raw strings.  Authors of Python scripts usually
use peculiar notations for peculiar purposes, and doing away with the
peculiarity negatively impacts the readability of the code.

This version preserves the original constants (parsed by *tokenize*)
in a literal pool indexed by the value they evaluate to.  The
canonical values (output by *compiler*) are then translated back (when
possible) to the original constants by looking them up in the literal
