Ville -

I'm afraid I have to agree, the subject is a poor one.  I noticed that
yesterday as the responses were slow to come in.  Something more on the
order of "READ THIS - IT'S FREAKIN' IMPORTANT!"  is surely warranted.

I am still relatively new to Usenet, and surely not aware of how to update
the subject of an existing post, otherwise I would have done so!

But please don't abstain in voting over my poor judgment in titling this
thread, the responses are starting to trickle in (there was already a
cross-mention on python-dev).  And I would not at all be offended if you
posted an additional note with some more-appropriate subject, directing
people to this process.
