OK. If nothing else comes up, I intend to release 0.4.2 on the weekend.
Note, though, that the python problem is not a code problem, but only a
build problem, so for this it would suffice to produce a 0.4.1build2 or
something. But there still is the (now hopefully resolved?)
crash/mangled line numbers issue that should be fixed if at all possible
(otherwise, people will complain about Tw crashing without apparent
reason for a whole year ;)).

BTW (hopefully) only out of curiosity: how does TL handle (security)
updates to "external"/binary programs like Tw?
