Thanks everybody!  I'm glad it's been so well received.

By coincidence, I only saw this thread today, /*after*/ spending hours 
working through the last blurb integration issues. But it's been a 
success.  And I'm pleased to announce I'll be releasing 3.5.4rc1 and 
3.4.7rc1 with blurb fully integrated!  There were a few surprising 
ramifications of blurb--but nothing we can't live with.

One nice side-effect of blurb: the formatting on Misc/NEWS, and 
therefore whatsnew/changelog.html, is somewhat improved.  Every entry 
starts with a nice blue bpo-#### link, the section headers are 100% 
consistently spelled and in a consistent order, and we even have a shiny 
new "Security" section that goes at the top above "Core and Builtins".
