For sure. He has improved his Metakit quite much, and I
wrote a C interface generator for static structured databases
which makes it very easy to use MK with C.
Well, not Python related.
JC also wrote a proof of concept impl of stackless Tcl, and
it really works (not growing the Stack).
Well, again not Python.
What he might want to show is the MK SQL interface that
Gordon McMillan has written for MK?
Anyway, try to get him out of his snale house.
