Two bugs in python.sty

Wojciech Śmigaj
Hello,

Recently I've uploaded two patches dealing with some typographical
problems of the Python LaTeX package (python.sty) to the Sourceforge
tracker of the Python project. Up to now I haven't received any
feedback, and I see it's kind of "normal" for patches submitted there to
be left unnoticed ;-), so perhaps I'll better mention them here, too.

The first patch does away with excessive space surrounding text typeset
within verbatim environments; its Tracker page is
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1293788&group_id=5470&atid=305470
The second ensures that headings of classdesc, methoddesc and similar
environments are separated from the following text with proper amount of
space: currently, it is not the case with multiline headings. The
patch's URL is
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1293790&group_id=5470&atid=305470

I believe these problems (esp. the former) are fairly visible to an
average reader of Python documentation, and their correction would
definitely improve its looks. So perhaps someone from the Doc team could
review the patches :-). Thanks!

Unfortunately, you're right.  :-(  I've assigned these two to myself, since
I'm kinda to blame for at least one of the problems you identified and
certainly for the delay in getting to documentation patches.

I definately appreciate the patches; these deal with problems that are outside
my TeX-knowledge.  Unfortunately, the only thing I use LaTeX (or any flavor
of TeX) for these days is the Python documentation, so I've not had
sufficient excuse or time to keep up with how things are done.

If you don't see progress on these in the next week, feel free to say nasty
things about me on the list.  :-)

Hope I won't have to :-). Thanks for your interest.

I'm afraid my description of the source of the "sigline" problem wasn't
very clear, so if you have any questions, ask me to reformulate it.
