Thanks for the good word.   I've reworked the code a little bit and  
fixed the comments.  I don't have svn write access, so someone else  
will have to take over from here.

That's what I wanted to use myself, but  PySet_CheckExact does not  
exist.  This looks like an oversight, but fixing that should probably  
come as a separate patch.
