PEP 361 lists the following modules for possible inclusion in 2.6 (next
to pyprocessing, which is now accepted):

- winerror
   (Owner: MAL)

This patch has been marked as rejected, so I'll remove the entry from
the PEP.

- setuptools
   BDFL pronouncement for inclusion in 2.5:

   PJE's withdrawal from 2.5 for inclusion in 2.6:

I guess this will be deferred?

- ast

If there's no objection, I'll go over the interface with Thomas, who's
working on AST optimization for 2.7, to make sure the ast interface can
stay the same after his branch is merged, write the docs and commit it
before beta1.

- bdist_deb in distutils package

- bdist_egg in distutils package

- pure python pgen module
   (Owner: Guido)
   Deferral to 2.6:

There are also several other "possible" todo items in PEP 361, but they
all look as if they are not required to be in before beta1.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
