I'm not asking for that. :)

All what I'm asking, is that when Python RC releases are out, and I 
report a bug, the community has the intention to fix it as early as 
possible, at least in master (and maybe help with backports if it's very 
tricky: I can manage trivial backporting by myself). That's enough for 
me, really (at least it has been enough in the past...).

Yeah, though it'd be nice if we could have the latest interpreter in use 
in Unstable for a non-voting job, starting when the interpreter is 
released (or at least when the first RCs are out). We discussed this 
already, didn't we? I know it's a "would be nice thing" and that nobody 
has time to work on this... :/
