Thanks a lot, Nick! :)

The PEP has landed in revision
http://hg.python.org/cpython/rev/adb471b9cba1 . I don't expect any test
failures as I have tested the PEP on a lot of platforms. The new code
compiles and passes its tests on Linux, Windows, BSD, HUPX, Solaris with
all supported CPUs (little and big endian, 32 bit and 64 bit).
