Perhaps you will. :-)

Also if you get some quiet moments where you look back fondly on the
times when you were knee deep in Python virtual machine innards,
there's also a crash bug in the 3.2.2 merge.  I've spent several hours
looking into this already, but given how long it has been since I've
had to debug this part of the virtual machine you could probably do it
a lot easier.  If you do, update to the 3.2-slp branch and run the
Python unit tests to observe the problem.
