Understood.  I thought that handling standard entities might be a
useful first step toward storage of Python as XML, which in turn would
help make Python more accessible to people who don't want to switch
editors just to program.  I felt that an all-or-nothing approach would be
even less likely to get a favorable response than handling entities... :-)
