Um, what?  You mean 3.1rc1, right?  Nevertheless, my understanding is
that 2.7 is mostly restricted to code landed in 3.1, so your second
statement is roughly correct.

"Given that C++ has pointers and typecasts, it's really hard to have a
serious conversation about type safety with a C++ programmer and keep a
straight face.  It's kind of like having a guy who juggles chainsaws
wearing body armor arguing with a guy who juggles rubber chickens wearing
a T-shirt about who's in more danger."  --Roy Smith, c.l.py, 2004.05.23
