Actually, the reason it worked on my Loongson 2F is that the Python 3
tests weren't run at all.  They've been enabled since then.

On the subject of things I want to get into 0.6, I forgot these:

> a44bec8 * PRELIMINARY Upgrade sqlite to 3.8.4, and apply large page size fix.

Dan Kennedy, who I guess is an sqlite dev, gave me a patch to fix the
problems with sqlite on systems with 64K pages, such as my YeeLoong.
I'd like to get this in, along with an upgrade to 3.8.4, or if
it's on the sourceforge mirror now (it wasn't the last time I checked).

gdb-7.7 seems to work for me, but the test suite consistently fails for
me on MIPS, and apparently also i686 judging from hydra, last I checked.
