Hi Armin.  Actually it was SF #900092 that I was referring to.  We fixed
this bug and those patches were applied to CVS (pre-svn conversion) for
both 2.4.2 and 2.5a1.  So at least the one I was talking about are
already in there!

I think you just misunderstood me.  I definitely care about the stdlib
and no, we strongly prefer not to use some locally hacked up Python.
E.g. we were running 2.4.1 with this (and a few other patches) until
2.4.2 came out, but now we're pretty much using pristine Python 2.4.2.

So I still think hotshot can stay in the stdlib for a few releases,
unless it's totally incompatible with lsprof, and then it's worth
