In a sense, yes (if I understand your question correctly).

You can use Bazaar to branch any of the 4 Python series and use all the modern
DVCS goodness to develop your updates.  You can share your branches with
others via e.g. Launchpad and even request reviews (called "merge proposals")
to get feedback from others.

The one thing I am unsure about, mostly because I have not tried it, is
whether your Bazaar branch can be used to commit directly back to the Python
Subversion master branches.  I /think/ the answer is yes, assuming of course
that you have permission to do so, and that you have a modern version of
Bazaar and the bzr-svn plugin.

It might even be possible to commit your Bazaar branch to a local Subversion
branch, and then commit the latter to get it pushed up to svn.python.org.

At worst, you would use Bazaar's features to get your patch into a state you
and your reviewers are happy with, then you would generate a diff for
application to your copy of the svn.python.org branch.
