Well, the (bad) effect of this patch is that you cannot run
PythonWin any longer unless Mark either supplies an updated
distribution, or one corrects the two barfing Scintilla
support scripts by hand.
Bad for me, since I'm building Stackless Python against 1.5.2+,
and that means the users will see PythonWin barf when installing SLP.

Adding a warning instead of raising an exception would be nice IMHO,
since the warning could probably contain the file name and line
number to change, and I would leave my users with this easy task.
