> What would the CVS magic invocation for that be?
cvs update -r descr-branch
cvs checkout -r descr-branch python/dist/src
Or just download 2.2a1.
> And...um...why? Has the bytecode changed significantly recently?
Not the bytecode, but the rest of the runtime has changed
tremendously, and as I tried to explain over the phone, that has a big
impact on reusability of the runtime. The bytecode engine cannot be
considered independent from the rest of the runtime.
