I wonder if there's any way to wave this one under their nose.  If for no 
reason other than to stem potential Ruby envy.

My only experience with the patch process is one patch I submitted in 
2003, when I was still a Python baby.[1]  I got lucky.  Guido himself 
picked it up right away, suggested a few changes, and then checked it in 
once I made them.  It showed up in 2.2, I think.

[1] I tweaked nntplib.py to allow multiline results to be put in a file or 
a file-like object, rather than returned in a list.  The list approach was 
really painful when retrieving headers from a large newsgroup.
