True, but note that he says there are patches against 2.4.2.  So he
apparently is maintaining this outside the Python source tree.  If
that's already the case, is it worth us keeping all the #ifdef'ery etc
in the trunk?

I know Donn from his c.l.p postings, but I don't recall him on
python-dev or seeing a patch.  Donn if you are here, care to explain
what direction you think we should take?
