I think the pygeo idea is a decent one ;)

Truly, if there is anything I can do to help make that a reality, please let
me know.  The documentation for pygeo is a problem.  Mostly because I don't
really understand who I should be writing it for, and my efforts keeping
getting sidetracked on that account.

In the context of a real world situation - if you help me understand what
assumptions I can make about your students background - it might get me off
the dime, a bit.

comp 103: so I don't need to worry about presenting basic Python concpets as
part of my docs.  That kind of thing.

Not a curriculum, certainly.  But documentation that might at least "speak
to" your students , a bit.

Math students studying programming is my ideal audience, I would think.

I would hope they would interested in taking apart the code a bit, and even
maybe putting it back together - better.
