How reproducible:

I would think this is an RFE that should be submitted upstream, to the
python folks - it doesn't have anything to do with the way Red Hat
packages python. If you have a patch, I'll be happy to submit it upstream.

Feel free to reopen the bug, of course.

You seem completely right.  Sorry for the noise.  Forgetting about
that for the moment.
