Hey Dang,

No, I haven't tried comp.lang.python yet.  I've posted to python-forums.org 
and no response there.  I didn't know about comp.lang.python though, so 
thanks for that tip. 

I'm just trying to learn to write extensions/new types in Python to interface 
with some other C code.  So far so good, everything works.  There's just that 
little nagging question I have about how it's setting a certain pointer in 
the PyObject structure for a new type.  I don't see where or how this is 
happening in the initialization chain when you create a new object of your 
new type.  It's one of those things I can just put on the back burner and 
keep moving forward, but it would be nice to know to make everything clear.  
Thanks for the comp.lang.python site.  I will definitely throw a post up 
there.  All the best.
