Is it worth it?  To whom ;-) ?  It was discussed several times before on
various Python mailing lists, and nobody was willing to sign up for the
considerable effort required (both to update Gay's code and to fight
with shifting platform quirks ever after).

If /you/ have the time, interest, and commitment, then yes, it's a Very
Good Thing.  The only hangup has been that it's also a labor-intensive
thing, in an obscure area requiring true expertise.
