Log Message:
Update to 2.3.7:

Python 2.3 is now well and truly in bugfix-only mode; no new features
are being added, and only security critical bugs have been fixed.
This release addresses a number of cases interpreter might have
crashed in certain boundary conditions.

What's New in Python 2.3.7?

*Release date: 11-Mar-2008*

What's New in Python 2.3.7c1?

*Release date: 02-Mar-2008*

Core and builtins

- Added checks for integer overflows, contributed by Google. Some are
  only available if asserts are left in the code, in cases where they
  can't be triggered from Python code.

What's New in Python 2.3.6?

*Release date: 01-NOV-2006*

What's New in Python 2.3.6c1?

*Release date: 25-OCT-2006*

Core and builtins

- Patch #1541585: fix buffer overrun when performing repr() on
  a unicode string in a build with wide unicode (UCS-4) support.
  This is the problem described in security advisory PSF-2006-001.

Extension modules

- Apply fix for potential heap overflow in PCRE code (CAN-2005-2491).


- The email package has improved RFC 2231 support, specifically for
  recognizing the difference between encoded (name*0*=<blah>) and non-encoded
  (name*0=<blah>) parameter continuations.  This may change the types of
  values returned from email.message.Message.get_param() and friends.
  Specifically in some cases where non-encoded continuations were used,
  get_param() used to return a 3-tuple of (None, None, string) whereas now it
  will just return the string (since non-encoded continuations don't have
  charset and language parts).

  Also, whereas % values were decoded in all parameter continuations, they are
  now only decoded in encoded parameter parts.
