I hope it doesn't. Python is so much more than python-mode.
A question, are you an FSF Emacs user or a XEmacs user? I ask
because my understanding is that FSF Emacs has its own python-mode
these days that's different than ours. I think most of the devs on
this list use XEmacs, though of course we want it to be FSF Emacs
compatible. FSF Emacs python-mode maintainer doesn't communicate
with us, AFAIK.
As for underscore in word class, the "historical" part is that Guido
liked it that way, so that's the way it stayed. I understand what
you're saying though.
My suggestion would be to try rebinding it. It seems like you know
enough about how to do that and what to look for in breakage, and
probably also how to fix such breakage. Speaking solely for myself,
I think we would accept patches that allowed python-mode to work
either way, perhaps keyed off a new configuration variable (py-
If you can come up with such patches, and it works on both XEmacs and
FSF Emacs, let us know and we'd consider applying them.
