[Python-Dev] Inspect Patch for IronPython (and Jython?) Compatibility

I've just submitted a patch on sourceforge to make inspect compatible
with IronPython (and Jython I think). This patch originally comes from
the IPCE ( http://fepy.sf.net ) project by Seo Sanghyeon. It is a
trivial change really.
The patch is number 1739696
It moves getting a reference to 'code.co_code' into the body of the loop
responsible for inspecting anonymous (tuple) arguments.
In IronPython, accessing 'co_code' raises a NotImplementedError -
meaning that inspect.get_argspec is broken.
This patch means that *except* for functions with anonymous tuple
arguments, it will work again on IronPython - whilst maintaining full
compatibility with the previous behaviour.
Jython has a similar patch to overcome the same issue by the way. See
As it is a bugfix - backporting to 2.5 would be great. Should I generate
a separate patch?
All the best,
