I am working on getting Zope to run (or at least, start) with Python
2.6. It actually starts right now after applying some patches, which
is amazing on itself, but it dies right away due to changes in
asyncore that break Zope's internal version of medusa.

I've opened a bug against Zope on Launchpad, but someone suggested
that it might actually be a bug in python, in the sense that it
changed asyncore in a backwards-incompatible way. I wouldn't go that
far, since I think it's more likely that Zope's version of medusa is
poking into asyncore internals instead:


I suspect a patch similar to this might be needed:


Anyone cares to comment?
