Heh. No, I was referring to the interpreter internals. The C
implementation doesn't use 'const' in any of the APIs or even the internal
functions. Guido has resisted because of 'const poisoning'. He doesn't want
to have to take a mad swath through all the code adding const everywhere
just to get it to compile (again) after beginning to add const.
