Sounds good to me, too, as long as a bit of explanatory text is added 
to the 'submit new' page. (e.g. "If no other groups apply, please use 
the group for your major Python version. Bugs reported against 
unmaintained versions of Python will not be fixed unless the bug can 
be reproduced using one of the maintained versions.")
