that's why you get warnings in 2.5, so you have time to update your 
code; see:


estimating what "a lot" is isn't trivial, but it's worth noting that a 
search for "lang:python \swith\W" over at google's code search only 
brings up about 200 cases, and most of those are found in comments and 
string literals.  and in Zope.
