The only thing I would insure works better before a release is triple-quoted
string rendering.  I think there are a couple patches floating around, but I
know longer know where to look for things.  Did SF tracker items get
transferred to Launchpad?

Given that a number of Emacs distros distribute python-mode I think we
should probably avoid making major changes in the way we number without good
reason.  I believe we are in the 4.7x range right now.  I suppose 4.80 or
5.00 would be reasonable.  Any idea how far reaching the current changes
are?
