python-dev isn't a good place to discuss this.  Please do one of two

* If you're sure of your bug and your patch, please submit an item on

* If you want to discuss this, please post to comp.lang.python and then
post an item to SF.

(python-dev focuses more on overall development than on small bugfixes
like this, although issues will generally move here for consensus if
there's been a long debate on c.l.py.  SF is essential for keeping track
of bugs and patches -- we've lost too many that were only posted to

A: No.
Q: Is top-posting okay?
