Full ACK.

And it's also worth noting that the people interested in the transition
filed bugs with patches for all but a few of them, which involved a
massive amount of work.  I suppose it's possible people interested in
the python transition could do the same instead of complaining, but that
seems a bit much to ask, sadly.
