That's the spirit!  A correction:

        Symbol in types module                 Symbol in builtins
        ----------------------                 ------------------
        ComplexType                            complex
        DictType, DictionaryType               dictionary

The last is actually "dict", not "dictionary".

I gotta say I don't see much point to deperecating types.py.  Doing so will
just annoy people, and fail to improve my life <wink>.  I see even less
point to extending it with additional TMTOWTDI, though.
