And I, for one, find that especially embarrassing when Uncle Timmy did
the original checkin ;-)

BTW, I just noticed that the Mac buildbot died with a segfault on the
2.4 branch, a few tests after test_capi "finished".  I'll backport the
fix for that from the trunk now.

BTW2, has anyone tested their favorite extension module on the trunk
with a release build?  If you don't start reporting horrible problems,
I'm not going to revert the patch that causes them :-)
