Gaaa!  Will it be replacing the current python.el?  In a backwards compatible 

The reason I ask is that I help maintain sage-mode [1] which is based on the 
current python.el.  However, I know some people like python-mode.el, so I would 
like to support it.  But I'd rather not add a whole compatibility layer myself. 
 Not to mention that the two cannot coexist in a single Emacs since they both 
define `python-mode'. I fail to see how adding YAPM is going to help my 
situation.  A similar situation occurred why I and others tried to add python 
support to expand-region [2].  They finally got something working but it was 
more trouble that it needed to be.

Of course, I will probably have about as much success asking that Emacs and 
XEmacs merge.  :-)
