FYI, Jonathan, the version of PEAK-Rules that's in SVN implements
everything that's currently in PEP 3124 except the Interface bits.
It does not, however, implement RuleDispatch-style predicate
expressions, just argument-isinstance tests. I'd hoped to have
predicates done this month, but it's running a couple weeks
behind. After it's done, I plan to throw together a
RuleDispatch-style API over it, to make porting/testing easier, using
something like "from peak.rules import dispatch" to get a module that
fakes the RuleDispatch API (e.g. somefunc.when() instead of when(somefunc)).
