IMHO it's not acceptable that people upgrading from one 2.4
kernel to the next will have to install Python 2 on their
machine. Security bugs are and will be discovered, you cannot
make it impossible for people to do security upgrades.

Reiserfs, ext3 and the new VM have never changed the build
requirements for people and haven't made it impossible for
people to upgrade to a new kernel.

Yes, I agree the method you're using to smuggle CML2 into
a stable kernel is insidious. Please stop it.
