BTW, I had to go here <http://peak.telecommunity.com/> to figure out  
what RuleDispatch was.

$ python -c "import dispatch; print dispatch.__doc__"

Multiple/Predicate Dispatch Framework

This framework refines the algorithms of Chambers and Chen in their 1999
paper, "Efficient Multiple and Predicate Dispatching", to make them  
for Python, while adding a few other enhancements like incremental index
building and lazy expansion of the dispatch DAG.   Also, their algorithm
was designed only for class selection and true/false tests, while this
framework can be used with any kind of test, such as numeric ranges,  
or custom
tests such as categorization/hierarchy membership.

NOTE: this package is not yet ready for prime-time.  APIs are subject to
change randomly without notice.  You have been warned!


     * Support DAG-walking for visualization, debugging, and  
ambiguity detection
