Simply the lack of anything to build on: Python has no sort of runtime
warning system now, and nobody has volunteered to create one. If you do
<wink>, remember that stdout & stderr may go to the bit bucket in a GUI app.
The bit about dropping the "L" suffix on longs seems unwarnable-about in any
case (short of warning every time anyone uses long()).
