Flipping Michele's commit bit (if he wants it) is overdue.  A quick
google doesn't show he refused it in the past, but the same search
shows the things things he did do - including the explication of MRO
in 2.3 (http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.3/mro/).  Plus he's
a softie for decorators, as am I.
