    Tim> What say we get 2.3.3 in motion?  

As long as a primary motivator for a 2.3.3 release seems to be
weakref-related, perhaps someone who's familiar enough with their usage
could beef up the docs enough to get rid of this comment at the top of the
module doc:

    XXX -- need to say more here!

I was motivated to take a look at the weakref docs for the first time after
Tim mentioned:

    Casual programmers aren't likely to use weakrefs at all, but once you've
    built a cache based on weakrefs in a large app, weakrefs become critical
    to your code and your design.
