Ticket 1345

I added patches for the 1.4 rc2 version and a patch for the SVN version.

I only tested the 1.4 branch on Python 2.7 after you announced it 
because I follow the SVN. It was also somewhat confusing because a fix 
is was in the SVN version except that it needed to include Python 2.7. 
(This was due to the Python 3 support that was added since the 1.4 branch.)

Some of the Python 3.1 features have been backported to Python 2.7 which 
will help with some of the porting to Python 3. For that reason, I would 
suggest that release notes indicate that Python 2.7 support is 
experimental - especially as Python 2.7 has only had one alpha release 
and the expected final release is 2010-06-26.
