Since you're just starting out and this is for new work for ETS, let's
get off the ground with the new machinery instead.  The new api isn't
fully baked out yet, but it's much, much nicer in many ways, the
functionality is better (in particular for ETS, the GUI support is
better), we have the traits-'lite' code we talked about with Eric
Jones at Scipy'09 in place now, etc.

The branch I've been posting about is in review, so you can work off
of it (and any feedback from you will be very useful):


And if you want docs/binaries:

    *  the docs for the in-testing ipython are at:
    * and downloads in various formats are at:
    * Note: the files with .bzr.r1321 in the names are the relevant
ones for today's call, NOT the 'nightly' ones.

Please have a go off this code instead, where your time and ours will
be much more productively spent than on 0.10, whose APIs are now
