Yes, if and only if someone puts in the effort.
Are you willing to do more than just complain? If so, please choose a

gets applied quickly -- if the patch is of good quality. After a few
patches, I'll recommend to python-dev that you be granted direct CVS
access, which would make the process that much more efficient.
