Looks like something happened to the FAQ data directory - it was empty.
I restored it from an Oct 8 2001 (!) version I found in the jython
directory, not sure that it is all appropriate anymore. :-(
Any more current archive anywhere?

Development proceeds in CVS, but no release has been made since 2.1. It
includes bugfixes and progress on Python 2.2 features.
There have been lots of questions recently that have related to CVS
features (how many times have I mentioned os.system/popen on
jython-users lately? ;-) ) so it may be reasonable to try to get a 2.1+
(2.1.1?) release with some of the updated functionality.
But making releases is not a trivial process...

Um, yeah, it is now. :-)
(Had to close the "tochild" stream - more was waiting for a carriage
return, and the user just wasn't giving it one... ;-) )
I c ouldn't duplicate any different behavior between jython & python
for the output formatting, however. So if there is an issue, someone
will need to file it separately.
