but doesn't the patch only affects code that manages to call tp_print
without the PRINT_RAW flag?  (that is, in "repr" mode rather than "str"

or to put it another way, if they manage to call tp_print without the
PRINT_RAW flag, isn't that a bug in their code, rather than in Python?

or am I just totally confused?
