Now that I have figured out how to use patch queues with bitbucket, I will
maintain greg's pep380 implementation as a patch on top of cpython here:

Testing it should be as simple as:
% hg qclone https://bitbucket.org/rndblnch/cpython-pep380
% cd cpython-pep380
% hg qpush pep380

and then the usual ./configure etc.

To test on an already existing clone of <http://hg.python.org/cpython>...
% hg clone http://hg.python.org/cpython
% cd cpython
% hg update -C default

you should enable mq extension...
% hg init --mq

get the pep380 patch and apply it...
% pushd .hg/patches/
% hg pull https://bitbucket.org/rndblnch/cpython-pep380/.hg/patches
% hg update
% popd
% hg qpush pep380

and then the usual ./configure etc.

The patch is now visible here:

Hope this helps,
