Sorry -- I don't know what I did but that file was corrupt. It's now
fixed. BTW if you've got python1.0.2.tar.gz there's NO need to fetch
python1.0.2.tar.Z since they are identical. The .Z file was created
for Dave Dench who seems to have unusual problems with gunzip.

DAVE: I'm sorry if you have ftp'ed the corrupt file already -- better
try again! I've now checked that the .Z file is really what it should
