Perhaps the "patches" link at http://www.python.org/ should point at
either DevFAQ#patches or the patches page.  (That was my original
intention in not linking directly to SF -- you're the one who added the
direct links.)

The question IMO is whether those links are for the benefit of core
developers or newbies.  I'm +1 on the latter.
