I have not problems with branches, but I guess that those
that do backports regularily have scripts that simplify
the job.

What's still missing is the version for unicode. Note that my patch
http://www.python.org/sf/424606 works a little different: Here the
argument is a complete word that should be stripped, not a collection
of characters, i.e.
your version: "oofoo".strip("foo") => ""
my version: "oofoo".strip("foo") => "oo"
