Having looked at many of Raymond's transformations earlier today (just
emailing him a copy of my thoughts and changes minutes ago), I agree
that this simplifies essentially every example I have seen translated,
and translated myself.

There are a handful of errors I found during my pass, most of which seem
corrected in the version he has sent to python-dev (though not all). 
To those who are to reply in this thread, rather than nitpicking about
the correctness of individual transformations (though perhaps you should
email him directly about those), comment about how much better/worse
they look.

Vote to add str.partition to 2.5: +1
Vote to dump str.find sometime later if str.partition makes it: +1
