Same here. I agree to back-port patches which are
urgent to have, like real bugs.
For features, I'd prefer to have a 2.4 tree.

It would be nice to have that anyway, since it
would allow us to be ready with the Stackless
port, right after 2.4 is final.
On the other hand, I never figurd out how to
keep stuff in sync, if Python is changed every
I'd be very fond if we had a concept for that!
