You're probably right, since AFAICT, python-mode checkin messages don't
actually go anywhere.  Should I hook it up to syncmail and direct the
checkin messages to python-mode at python.org (I really don't want to
create Yet Another Mailing List for such expected low traffic).

Neat.

Very cool.  I'm definitely going to have to play with Pymacs one of
these days.

We should plan on a few things with python-mode, related to the Python
2.4 release.  We need to merge a stable copy back into Python's Misc
directory.  Right now its got 4.41 while the current version in the
python-mode project is 4.63.  We should also let upstream providers (the
FSF and XEmacs folks) know when we've got a stable release for them to
sync to.  Any thoughts on that?
