> Not sure if they will go into 3.3, because there seem to be non-trivial changes for in Lib/distutils.
The feature freeze applies to all branches.  Even when 3.4 starts, the same rule that has been repeatedly explained for two years will apply: no new features in distutils.  Again, neither Tarek nor I are happy about that, but it was the decision taken by python-dev due to the big number of setup.py scripts depending on undocumented behavior, bugs and quirks.

> Other self-contained changes probably should still go into 3.3.
Not sure; we are in beta now, and cross-compilation does not look like an existing feature that is being fixed, but a new feature being added despite the beta status.
