Sounds like a plan, but you need lots of experience with database
to fill the spaces with content, since each setup has its own

You should probably be asking on c.l.p and maybe write a fe
articles in Py to see how well this area of interest is

Note that Programming Python on Win32 already includes quite
a bit of information in this area.
