Even "print>>" or copyright issues ? No, there are some new ones like:
- Help. windows me halts when I try to install python 2.0
- [PEP] Working storage section ( a la COBOL) for python
- [PEP] Switch for handling directly memory allocation. The happy
night of the zomby  pointers.

Splitting would have an inmmediate benefit: Crossposting.

Python should be like "sharks" : their design was so simple and
