Guido had mentioned awhile ago about possibly adding pychecker to Tools.
If people want it in, what needs to be done?

There are 2 differences between the last released version of pychecker
and the current CVS.  1 is a bug fix for inconsistent return types and 
the other is a new warning for local variables which shadow globals.

I will run the current pychecker on the std library soon and report
any problems.

I have been running purify and all of the "major" problems have bugs
reports.  These "major" problems are memory leaks, the biggest is
about 5k from test_parser which leaks when doing recursion in build_node_children() parsermodule.c:728.
