Trouble downloading Python-2.0.1

- The SourceForge file was truncated. SF appears to be experiencing
serious difficulties at this point; I don't know if that had
anything to do with it. (Someone also stole the Windows files that
Tim had uploaded the night before the release...)
- The python.org files were broken in a bizarre way: for some reason
it was a gzipped gzipped tarball. I must've done something like
"tar czf - Python-2.0.1 | gzip >Python-2.0.1.tgz".
I've fixed the tgz file on python.org, updated the MD5 checksum, and
added a note to the top of the page explaining the confusion.
I'll upload the good tgz file to SF as soon as I can log in there.
