Is it a case of "folding in" or of merging a file? I thought it was the
latter because I thought that Jeremy's changes were backwards compatible
with py2c.

My point is, if I build an interesting application on top of Jeremy's
version and you continue to build on the older version, we will have a
defacto code fork because one of us will have to update our code in
order to re-sync. If Jeremy's code is just a drop-in replacement then
that won't be a problem and I'll just use it until you get around to
"dropping it in" to py2c.
