Well, I wanted to make the patches that Johannes suggested, but
ran into trouble when building the Python docs from CVS source
(see my other message about this).

Also, I'm not sure how a test-case should be constructed
for this patch? Can the Python regression test download stuff
as part of a test? Or is there some other way to make a
testcase for this.
