I'm pretty sure Mike is still the pywcs maintainer, but as the pyfits 
maintainer I can say it looks good to me.  The 'fromstring' portion of 
your patch is already fixed in pywcs's trunk (it checks the pyfits 
version with pyfits.__version__ by the way).

But the all the has_keys still need to be fixed.  That one's a bit 
surprising since I thought I grepped most of our code base for that and 
removed them, but I guess a few slipped through the cracks.
