There is a long track of people contributing patches to Python saying
"you need this and that to make it work on platform XYZ". Right after
accepting these patches (without testing, because we might not have
access to XYZ) they come back with more patches. If you then look
carefully at the initial submission, they never actually claimed that
this is *all* patches that are needed. Instead, they use phrases like
"some trivial fixes" (meaning that the difficult fixes are yet to come).
