Why bump 'my work' ? I'm just reviewing patches checked into the head. A fix
for the above problems would fit in a patch release very nicely, and a
release is a release. Besides, releasing 2.1.1 as 2.1 + dict fix would be a
CVS nightmare. Unless you propose to keep it out of CVS, Barry ? :)

I'll channel Guido by saying he wouldn't even allow us to ship it with
anything other than the PSF licence :)
