It *is* 2.2 compatible (AFAIK), I think you are proposing that it should
use 2.2 features. This would make it incompatible with pre-2.2 Python.
Tavis I believe played around with some of those 2.2 features in Webware
Exp, but it didn't go so well. A number of the features seem like
they'd be beneficial when you were designing something, but Webware is
already pretty much designed. Super and the new inheritance rules are
nice, but they aren't huge.
