Hi Barry,

thanks for answering. I'm aware of you situation concerning time.

Always have that in mind. Until now there is one changing concerning

py-beginning-of-def-or-class really "or"

So far I see no other need and this one might revoked if causing divorce... :)

OK, but even then: the assigment question... See below.
IMHO assignment blocks development to a large extent.

Ahh, as told, I'm _not_ going to sign. Is XEmacs code assigned as such?
Reading the code and the history of python-mode.el I assume no one is  able to assign
 this code to FSF rightfully.

so everything's legally clean.

Does such a thing exist in this world?
There are no more dirty corners than in
lawyers and the courts houses.

What I can assure: that I have written the changes I sent you.

BTW in german we have a saying: "Don't awake the sleeping dogs."
That's just the thing, legalizing does. It's a never ending night-mare.

FSF seems running into.

 Sound okay?
