I would recommend this strategy. Supposedly, you will rarely need to
perform imports from PythonLabs Python: the CE changes should be
largely independent of how PythonLabs Python develops.
Imports might be needed only when a chunk of your changes is accepted
into CVS Python.
You don't need a separate SF project, perhaps: A CVS module on the
python project might be sufficient. We can ask SF to remove the tree
when/if CE incorporation is complete.
