Yes, definite thanks to Nick for dealing with a bunch of pkgutil bugs and
such, along with Barry pushing the new import docs forward,  Eric Snow for
helping discuss all of the issues, and Eric Smith chiming in as well for b2
doc stuff.

My personal life got thrown a curveball last week that is going to take a
month before the turmoil from it settles down completely and my free time
isn't spent on work stuff (no need to worry, everyone is fine and there
won't be any long term effects) so I definitely appreciate the help with
all of this.

Heh, the PEP 362 Signature docs have not been checked in yet either (
http://bugs.python.org/issue15151), although Yury has a draft done. So you
are not the only one behind in docs stuff for 3.3. =)
