It would be great to merge into Roundup.  The Trac instance is ancient
and I've not had the time to try to upgrade it, which would indeed
now be a waste of effort.

When Roundup is ready, please let me know and I can at least make a pass
through the pydotorg tickets to close those that aren't worth moving
over to Roundup.  There are quite a few stale and questionable items.
In fact, it wouldn't be the end of the world to discard almost
all of them, but still worth a review.
