You do of course know that no bug-fix version of Python will remove a
feature, don't you?
If you said
"Whadda ya mean we can't use the NEW version of Python
unless/until we rewrite the code??!!"
I might have thought you had a point.
Unfortunately, nigh the whole world is now duped into thinking that
silly fill-in forms on web pages is the way to do user interfaces.
