Muahaha.  Now I can sneak in my PEP, propose it, and get it accepted
all before he gets back!! ;)

Is this validating "label paragraphs" or checking for "bad things"
like un-matched delimiters?  Assuming the latter, yay!! :)

Still not sure about these, but I'll reserve judgement until I see
them and their docs.

> * a rewritten STpy.html document (i.e., the STpy spec) to reflect
> current status and thoughts, with at least the starts of "curvy warning"
> bits to talk about the nooks and crannies of STpy

sounds useful.

Bah.  Sleep is for the weak!  Oh, and maybe for the tired, too.
