Duplicate of #4920? (and yes, I know that ticket is assigned to me - I got stuck when exarkun asked me to write tests and I didn't know how)

BTW, what is this new "Python 3.3 Minimal" milestone? Seems to be relevant to my project (such as it is), but I haven't managed to find any discussion anywhere about it.

Bah this actually wasn't open. But rather than file another duplicate, might as well use this one!
