Fine by me to put these in emacs-24.
Please give the new defcustom a :version "24.3" tag.
(I did wonder if the entire python defgroup should just get such a tag,
since it is essentially a new mode.)

Eli already answered about "backport" being important. (It's generally
best to put things appropriate for emacs-24 in emacs-24 to start with,
then let them get merged to trunk "automatically".)

Remember to float the ChangeLog entry to the top of the file, with the
appropriate date (bzr's changelog_merge plugin can do the first part).
