That's a separate step -- but definitely worth considering.  For now,
I expect that PyChecker's release cycle is so much faster than
Python's that it's better to keep the two separate, but maybe a year
from now PyChecker has grown up enough to do this.  (We could put a
PyChecker snapshot in the Tools directory around release time, but
that's not much use if it keeps changing.)

I'm sure Neal will know his limits.  :-)
