It would be very nice if these complex corner cases had a set of test
cases which could be run by all implementations (CPython, Jython,
IronPython, PyPy, etc).  I don't know.  Maybe the CPython test suite serves
that purpose, but it seems like it would be helpful if this sort of
"validation suite" was maintained as a separate project all implementations
could use and contribute to.
