ajaksu2, I don't understand why you want to close this bug if it isn't
fixed.  I can accept that it's not the highest priority issue in the
world, but it's something that trips up users from time to time, and it
ix obviously fixable.  Closing bugs like this is demoralizing to those
of us who take the trouble to submit them in the hope of helping improve
Python.  I've noticed that any number of times over the years, and
recently saw a post about Ubuntu bug triage that expressed the sentiment
better than I could:


(And while trying to locate that several week old post through web
searches, I came across several more like it...).  

Anyway, the best thing to do with bugs like this is fix them.  If there
is other work with higher priority, the obvious thing is to just leave
the bug open so someone gets around to it sooner or later.  Closing the
bug without a fix comes across as destructive.
