Just a quick note to thank Itamar Shtull-Trauring for pointing out
that this is not true.  pyrepl needs Python 2.1 (it uses a continue
inside a try block (which is fixable) and setupterm and tparm from
curses (which isn't)).  Sorry 'bout that.


  But since I'm not trying to impress  anybody in The Software Big
  Top, I'd rather walk the wire using a big pole, a safety harness,
  a net, and with the wire not more than 3 feet off the ground.
