Hmmmm....  I think the fact that three different people have stepped up
to the plate to handle bugfix releases is a *feature*.  In addition,
three releases in six months does not a long-term trend make.  As Barry
said, if there's a problem with PEP6, I'd love to know about it; other
than that, there haven't IMO been enough Python releases and patches to
warrant more bugfix releases than have occurred or are on the plate.

Good work so far!
