I never installed that patch because I was uncertain about the authorship
of the parts of python-mode.el that I was taking from.

I still have a local copy of the patch updated to the trunk and could install
it now if instructed to do so.

There appear to be two options:

1) Install my patch in python.el which may in reality only involve your
   contribution to python-mode.el and may not require other signatures.

2) Replace python.el with a modified python-mode.el which would require
   more signatures (Barry Warsaw, Skip Montanero?) and more work.
