Hmm.  That's possible.  The only problem is that I have modified the
2.3.4 compiler so people would need to be willing to have a copy of
2.3.4 source, apply the patch, and then probably run py_compile on
their Python code tree.

But who knows, some people might be interested enough to bother.  I
can post the code once I think it is as bug-free as it is going to get
before I start collecting stats.

Thanks for the suggestion, Robert.
