To be honest, I did not look into each patch in great detail. I really
just tested the resulting builds to make sure they did not break
anything obvious.

That said, let's dive in!

Indeed it does not. Based on the feedback in the upstream bug, let's
drop it.

I can't find a bug for this either.

This is some logic for python-wrapper that was in the 2.7.2 patchset as
well. If you want to drop it, I'm sure that will require some
re-engineering of python-wrapper.

I don't see any mention of a bug in the 2.7.2, 2.7.3 or 2.7.3-0 version
of the patch, so I'm not sure what you are referring to here.

I don't really see a difference either way. I guess it is more visible
in the ebuild.

Well, that does seem to be Arfrever's baby, so as long as he keeps
rebase it, we should be ok.

That makes sense. I will keep it in mind.

Would you like me to cut a new set of tarballs without 08, 22, and 23?
