I think it's more the latter.  I partly provoked this by bitterly pointing
out that there's more code in the CVS tree devoted to supporting the single
xrange() gimmick than Neil Schemenauer added to support the get-out-of-town
more powerful new generators.  Masses of crufty code nobody benefits from
are a burden on the soul.
