Enjoy. :-)  Is there a online archive where I can watch the fun
without signing up?

BTW I forgot to mention that parts of the test are self-checking, but
other parts require comparing of the output.  The file 'out' is all
you should care about.  And if you want the bytecode, try this in a
Unix shell:

  $ python2.3 -O
  [GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
  Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
  >>> import b
  >>> ^D

You should now have optimized bytecode in the 8 files b*.pyo.
