At the moment I have too weak a server to provide those files, but
that will change very soon.  All that said, the Python and ActiveState
teams need to be aware of each and every Python release and go through
a standard release procedure anyway, whereas -- except for this
problem -- I would not.  I'm willing to try to add it if that's what
works, and of course it's easy for me to say, but I think it adds a
lot more overhead for me than it would for the other two groups.
