Okay... how about someone takes Guido out for dinner and feeds him way too many bottles of wine and ferrets to show him such things do not necessarily lead to blood feuds ? Maybe take along some psychotropic drugs and a halfway decent hypnotist for safety's measure. Meanwhile Barry subscribes Just to python-dev and you or someone else with the pickpocket skills to get at the keys for the time machine (come on, fess up, you all practiced) make sure Guido can't get at it, lest he try and make up with Just in the past in his 'suggestable' state... Better change the Mailman admin password too, just to be on the safe side.
Or if that has no chance of a prayer in hell of working, I can give Just a secret xs4all.nl address (since he has an XS4ALL account nowadays, that shouldn't be a problem) and we just never tell Guido that firstname.lastname@example.org is really Just ;)
It's very sad, really -- but also wonderfully Dutch.
No, it would only be wondefully dutch if either brother was German or Belgian in some way, or of royal blood and married to the wrong type of christian sect (Protestant or Catholic -- I keep forgetting which is which.)
