At the ACCU conference a few months back, I was talking about
new-style classes and asked the audience what version of Python they
were using.  I was surprised by the response: apart from one guy who
said '2.1 when I'm forced to work with old versions of Zope'
*everyone* was using 2.3.

        account for the discrepancy between my immediate physical
        sensations and my state of mind?
