That's not so long, in context.  Unfortunately.

If you're not submitting them because your first patch hasn't gone in,
that doesn't sound like a particularly good reason to me.

Well, if it hasn't been looked at before 2.3 alpha time, I'd start
making a fuss.  It's not really going to make much difference before
then, is it?

"be patient"

Does that help?  I think one of the PythonLabs crew probably has to
look at this patch before it can go in, and they're even busier than
the rest of us.
