Perhaps you can work on a branch of the standard Python CVS tree?  If
you're all Python developers (or can be sworn in easily) that would

Otherwise you could set up your own SF project "pythonce" and do a
vendor branch checkin of Python.  I've never used vendor branches
myself, but Kurt Kaiser uses them in the idlefork CVS, which deals
with a similar issue.
