For an appropriate definition of 'bug' they fix a bug. Seriously,
even implementations of PEPs fix a bug in that the current
behaviour is not how it *should* be. I guess the problem is that 
what some people think what *should* be in python 
is not what the core developers (or GvR at last) thinks. That's fine!
The issue/feature/bug/patch should be rejected or at least
deferred then. Why are the 50 or so patches still in the queue?
