We call that "serendipity", not accident.

Like Python itself, "Python-URL!" is not rigid.  It accomodates
variability.  It shrinks, it expands, it *breathes*, it occasi-
onally holds itself in reserve a little bit, until the timing
feels better.

Sometimes "a little bit" extends over months.  OK, years.
