Sightings:
    Python 1.6 alpha 2 is out!  Lots of bug fixes, changes to
    the windows installer, and more.  Expect a third alpha
    within two weeks or so.

    Remember the slightly misleading 1.6 release note we pointed
    to last week?  Turned out that Guido didn't do it -- or at least
    that's what he says:
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=605330122
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=606107926

    In fact, Greg Ward claims he did it.  And you know what?  He
    might be right -- after all, who else would use the word "frob"
    sixteen times in a single post?
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=606237127

    On the other hand, we keep hearing rumors that Greg is just
    a scapegoat, and that the real story is that Barry has found
    a portal into Guido's head:

    Or whatever...
