Indeed -- probably better than me at this point! I haven't quite been able
to keep up with the latest CPython patches. In any case, I think you'd be
an ideal person for maintaining the backport. I know there was some
question in the past about whether you had desire/time for more open source
contributions; in that light, are you willing and do you have the time?
Though again, this isn't a big module and really just a few fixes at this
