Isn't that MvL?

I still hope this can go in; it will help web framework authors do the
right thing long term.

I'm withdrawing this for 2.5 and resubmitting it to 2.6; I have no
time to clean it up. I know it is possible using this code to create a
Python source-to-bytecode compiler in pure Python (using tokenizer.py
for the lexer and the compiler package as the bytecode generator, and
accepting the latter's imperfections) but few people have that need
and those that do can download it from SF.

Yes, this would be cool.
