Don't worry about either of these - they fail on all sorts of random
platforms, unfortunately. (bsddb in particularly seems to be
particularly finicky to get right)

Good to hear. Of course, this is all part of the fiendish plot to
create more people familiar with the innards of Python - you too can
be a developer! <wink>

On a related note, I've not seen anyone step forward to do the same
work for any of the C varieties. If you[1] think that this is a
serious contender, then you need to step forward and do the work - a
lack of an implementation is almost certainly going to mean that it
won't be considered. See this thread for pointers to the SF entry that
lists the files changed for the @syntax - this is a good cheat-sheet
for implementation. This patch should be created against current-CVS.

[1] "you" is addressed in general, not to Michael
