[PythonCE] trunk merge?

Does anyone have an idea on what some of the issues surrounding earlier attempts/investigations at 
merging the PythonCE specific changes into the main Python trunk were?

I can have a guess at what a couple of these may be, but it would be handy to keep these things in 
mind if a more increased development effort starts to build around the PythonCE port.

I have a couple of ideas on things that we could do to reduce the size of our diff, and to reduce the 
amount of "core" Python code we touch which may help any eventual patch be accepted.

I also like the idea of having a place in SVN for third party libraries. I have a couple of small 
patches to libraries such as pygame to make them more usable/compatible with the PythonCE port. It 
would be nice to have these in revision control before being able to push the changes upstream. Would 
that be the intention for that directory?
