I personally would consider it a waste of time. Since it wouldn't waste
*my* time, I'm -0 :-)

I think everybody has arranged with whatever quirks Python 2.3 has.
Distributors of Python 2.3 have added whatever patches they think are
absolutely necessary. Making another release could cause confusion;
at worst, it may cause people to special-case people for 2.3.6 in
case the release contains some incompatible change that affects
existing applications.
