I am glad to hear that. I'm somewhat nervous about it nevertheless. In particular, the implementation of Py_DECREF changed from 3.7 to 3.8 to 3.9. 3.7 worked entirely in a header; but 3.8 had a quirky definition of _Py_Dealloc which used _Py_Dealloc_inline but was defined out of order (used before defined). This was somewhat addressed in; however 3.9 now has another mechanism that defines _Py_Dealloc in Objects/object.c. This isn't a major problem because it has the same implementation as before, but changes like this have the potential to make the launcher binary be version specific. Again, not a deal breaker, but it still makes me nervous.
