yes it seems that must be the case. Maybe someone at python.org should tell the
ubuntists not to do that.
However, even a proper 2.7.4 release shouldn't change the interface (ie rename
module variables). That must be down to someone at python.org. I guess because
2.7 is the last minor release of the 2.x series that the stability requirements
have been dumped.
Luckily, our code didn't launch any missiles because of this 'fix'. I always
recommend people to build their own python for exactly this reason.
