In a few years, and if hell freezes over, maybe.  It's recommended that 
new software uses System Configuration and Launch Services to replace 
Internet Config usage, but disabling Internet Config would break a 
whole lot of Carbon software.  Python doesn't have an official wrapper 
for System Configuration (though I have one available), and the Launch 
Services wrapper is new for Python 2.4.
