I'm hoping to release a first, rough alpha of Python 1.6 by April 1st
(no joke!).

Not everything needs to be finished by then, but I hope to have the
current versions of distutil, expat, and sre in there.

Anything else that needs to go into 1.6 and isn't ready yet?  (Small
stuff doesn't matter, everything currently in the patches queue can
probably go in if it isn't rejected by then.)
