[Python-Dev] best practices stdlib: purging xrange

I'd like to suggest that we remove all (or nearly all) uses of 
xrange from the stdlib. A quick scan shows that most of the usage 
of it is unnecessary. With it going away in 3.0, and it being 
informally deprecated anyway, it seems like a good thing to go away 
where possible.

Any objections?
