sure -- it's your time.

but anyone insisting on using the bleeding edge development CVS
version (instead of a stable version) can save a lot of time by sub-
scribing to the python-cvs mailing list.   in that way, you'll *know*
what's changed in the bleeding edge version.

(in this case, the socket module was updated a few hours before
the standard library.  the standard library was updated about 20
hours before the bug report).
