As I remember, 2.3.1 was precedent for this -- a quick
fix-one-critical-item release about a week after 2.3.
Perhaps Python.org should have a release-announcement-only mailing list for

release announcements and security warnings could be made on the various
Python-application mail lists if not so done already.
