Congratulations! I maintain ctypes for debian. I am holding off uploading
the 0.9 versions because they don't support Python 2.2. A Python 2.2 package
was present in debian for ctypes 0.6.2, I want to be sure that no one is
using it before uploading 0.9.x.

That aside, I am wondering if it isn't time to push ctypes for inclusion
into the standard Python distribution. Too late for Python 2.4, but how
about Python 2.5?
