Grab _abcoll.py, abc.py, numbers.py and put in application search path.
Modify collections.py to import _abcoll.py.
See if they word 'as is' or if they use new 2.6 features, and if so, if 
they can be backported.  (If they have to be changed, others might 
appreciate the revised version too if made available via pypi.)
