[PATCH] Some new stuff

Basically, I'd like to use python as my system shell. It's not suitable
for a general purpose shell but since it is very programmable it can
eventually do whatever bash does and even more.
One thing I'd like python to do is: attach the *python code* of a
function to a function object. The same for class.
This can be done in python as it is but it doesn't feel very right. I
think it should be the job of the parser. So there is a patch vs 2.3.4 at:
With this patch when the command line option -P is passed to python,
all functions and classes have an extra member __pycode__ which is the
code of the thing!
This is very exciting because if combined with a function 'save()' which
looks for all the functions/classes in globals(), takes their __pycode__
and saves it to a file (along with it's own code: save.__pycode__) can
lead to a really fun Python Incremental Expert System Shell.
Such a sample system is also included in the tar file.
For example we can say:
lsfunc() # lists all functions
pr (lsfunc) # prints definition of lsfunc
ed (pr) # edits the function 'pr'
save () # saves all and we go to sleep
