In a perfect world, the only thing that would change between 2.3c1 and 2.3
final is the bits of code from which version numbers derive -- stability is
the highest priority for a release candidate.

It's possible that, e.g., the Cygwin woes will get pinned on the Python core
before 2.3 final is released, and then if the fix(es) is(are) at all subtle,
we'll have to do another release candidate.

If people are eager to check in random improvements, it would be best to
make a branch out of the rc1 tag (and random improvements could proceed on
the head).
