Very nice.  http://www.python.org/dev/buildbot/stable/ is completely
green at the moment -- which means that I can now indeed take failures
seriously in the future.  Previously, two of four "stables" for py3k
were not even connected for ages (and yes, I should have complained
earlier.  As we progress into the beta stage, I will take buildbot
failures and release blockers more seriously).


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
