Warren, thank you for a far more reasonable response than my post
warranted. There seems a trend on this group for frustration to turn
into ultimatums, which is what really triggered my outburst. Well,
that and a crappy day at work.

As for your above comment, I totally agree. It's probably the main
outcome I'd like to see arise from the PyPy project: faster and easier
experimentation with implementations. Nothing like some additional
evolutionary pressure to make Python more fit.

Good luck with resolving your current issue.
