It may be worth mentioning that augmented assignment is also being
considered for 2.0, and possibly other operators (we still haven't heard
from Guido on that, I believe, and there was at least one +1 from Eric.)
Also, maybe the outcome of small CNRI/BeOpen thread would be nice to
mention? CNRI says they will release python 1.6, and python 2.0 will
probably (possibly ?) be released by BeOpen after that ?
