> I'm a bit confused on this.  You no longer fix bugs in Python 2?

We do, but it's unlikely that we will introduce major changes in behavior.
Even if we had to get rid of narrow builds and/or fix len(), we would probably only do it in the next 3.x version (i.e. 3.3), and not in the next bug fix release of 3.2 (i.e. 3.2.2).

This IMHO should be fixed, but it's another issue.

I am familiar with the Chapter 3, but admittedly I only read the parts that were relevant to the bugs I was fixing.  I never went through it checking that everything in Python matches the described behavior.
Thanks for pointing out the parts were Python doesn't follow the specs.
