Yeah, understood. I was thinking of having the individual patch
authors create temporary GitHub repositories to push to. It'd be an
optional step; if you want to show people a preview of your PR, just
create a repository and push to it (using a script something like
that). That way, you don't have to worry about malicious content
(since it'll be hosted under the author's name - I'm sure GitHub have
measures in place to deal with that, and it wouldn't be Python.org's
problem), nor having lots of gh-pages branches sitting around (they'd
be the responsibility of the author).

No probs, and I don't mind if it's not adopted. Just wanted to put it out there.
