Though, presumably, PyGeo was not included in the sample on which he
concluded on the convergence of open source software to a bug free state :)

My favorite is that the little stab I took at custom error reporting in the
code is itself sorely broken.  So instead of getting the kind of error
reporting that was intended, you get a standard Python error message
complaining, in essence, that the error reporting code is broken.  

And I always seem to have something more fun to do than fix it.  Though I am
sure it would not take much.  I am getting more serious about a new release,
and will be forced to deal with it, though.
