IronPython Standard Library Patch Accepted into Python

Guido has accepted a patch to the Python standard library inspect module as acceptable for inclusion in Python:

Inspect Patch for IronPython (and Jython?) Compatibility

The patch originates from the FePy project and could be in Python 2.6, and even the next bugfix release of 2.5. Note that Guido has only agreed that it can be applied, it hasn't actually happened yet...

It is however, a good (if small) example of IronPython feeding back into CPython. This patch benefits other alternative implementations of Python as well as IronPython
