The PEP 341 patch is now using Marek's 'do ... while' resource cleanup
trick instead of the nasty goto voodoo.
I've also fixed the last remaining bug that Neal pointed out. I'm
running the unit tests right now, shall have the updated (and hopefully
final) PEP 341 patch up on sourceforge within the next 15 minutes.
If anybody has feedback/suggestions for the patch, please let me know.
I'm new to this stuff, so I'm still finding my way around :)
