Is a 'bugfix' version of jed's editor config file available anywhere?

I just started using the jed editor, and am really happy with it--
like emacs, but much, much friendlier. However, my python mode
file (the one that came with the 0.99.16 precompiled version of
jed that I got) isn't handling string highlighting properly--
it doesn't understand that '''This 'string' isn't really a string'''
is a single triple quoted string, and instead treats the interior
' marks as string delimiters as well as (correctly) treating the 
''' as single string delimiters. I took a quick look in
and it didn't look hard to fix, for someone familiar with slang's
DFA implmentation and its RE syntax--which I'm not :-( ). So
I thought I would try here first.

Thanks for any suggestions,
