The getargs mods got checked in just this morning, even though I 
and rather strongly asked that if these mods be made they be checked in
*long* before a release was due:-(

This means that all the Mac modules are now 100% dead. The same is 
probably true
for PyObjC. And PyObjC has the added problem that
it needs to be compatible with both 2.3b1 and 2.2 (notice that that is 
not "2.2.X": PyObjC has to work with /usr/bin/python that Apple ships, 
is 2.2 at the moment). I assume there are format codes that will convert
16 bit and 32 bit integer quantities without any checks on both 2.2 and 
but I haven't investigated yet.

And there may be problems with other wrapper packages (win32, wxPython, 

I will start fixing things, but there are only 4 real days left before 
April 25,
given easter, so I would strongly urge for postponing the release date 
another two weeks or so.
