For some reason, when checking the Python version, you only check the
second digit. So, with Python 3.0-3.4, you'll try
to import md5. This is a minor bug that is caught by Tres' test.
It is not the reason I'm pulling the changes.

I don't want people to contribute crap. You've made some reasonable
contributions recently so I know you are capable of
producing non-crap.

In any case, nothing is deleted in subversion. If someone creates even
minimal tests that exercise the code you changed, then I'll
be happy to reapply the change. At some point, if no one takes
responsibility for repozo, I'm inclined to remove it from the
distribution, as there is an implied promise of support,
which seems to be lacking.
