[Python-Dev] Python 3.0.1

With the extensive changes in the works, Python 3.0.1 is shaping-up to be a complete rerelease of 3.0 with API changes and major 
usability fixes.  It will fully supplant the original 3.0 release which was hobbled by poor IO performance.

I propose to make the new release more attractive by backporting several module improvements already in 3.1, including two new 
itertools and one collections class.  These are already fully documented, tested, and checked-in to 3.1 and it would be ashamed to 
let them sit idle for a year or so, when the module updates are already ready-to-ship.
