In my mind, the reason for this patch is that xrange/range can be thought of as a lazy list of integers. However without this patch, membership checking was done trivially instead of in a "smart/lazy" manner, which is unexpected for users. Finally, conditions such as "num in xrange(3, 1000, 5)" are not trivial to express correctly otherwise, and even more so for negative steps.

This patch is already implemented and accepted for 3.2, I just wish to back-port it to 2.7 which should be fairly straightforward.

I'll just have a patch ready by tomorrow, and hope that someone finds the time to review it and possibly commit it in time for rc1. I realize that this is a minor change at the last minute. I will certainly understand if the people responsible for preparing rc1 are too busy for this.
