At this point in the development cycle you are fairly safe. As later 
messages in this thread indicate you've been caught up in a problem with 
the Windows build environment rather that a mod_python bug. It's my 
personal opinion that trunk should always be in a fairly stable state so 
that people *can* use in their own development environment. That way we 
can catch problems that may be introduced early resulting in better and 
more timely releases. That being said, it is the development branch, and 
breakage may happen. :)

Encouraging people to use trunk in their project development implies 
that we have some sort of a predictable release schedule. People won't 
like it if they use some new nifty feature in trunk but don't know when 
it might be available in a stable release for use in production. Just 
something to think about when we are planning our timelines.
