Yeah, this disturbs me a lot still though :-S

It's a shame Jim has so little time to spend on this...

It's also a shame that no one seems to be able to get any sense out of 
the PyPy guys in this area...

One thing that myself and Shane talked briefly about on this list was 
re-implementing the AST manipulation as dissallow-by-default filter 
rather than a straight manipulation. That way, unexpected stuff should 
be allowed by default. That feels like it might be a lot safer when it 
comes to python version changes, but I must admit, I haven't looked 
closely enough to give a definitive answer...
