The problem with that is that a used or borrowed copy is unlikely to
be the (new) 2nd edition, (see
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lpython2/) which covers up to Python
2.3.  (The older version is badly outdated).  Besides which, if you
actually buy a copy they might consider a 3rd edition at some time in
the future.
