PROGENV-SIG: Discussion forum for Python programming-environment issues

The progenv-sig is intended for the discussion of the issues concerning
the Python programming environment - the facilities, including editors,
interpreter, debuggers, browsers, documentation, and so forth,
instrumental in the actual act of Python programming.  Discussions may
cover use of and problems with existing facilities, as well as efforts to
produce new tools and solutions.  The overall orientation is to foster the
development of this programming environment. 

Some examples of prospective topics are:

 - Development and integration of program editors, debuggers, profilers, 
   browsers, etc
 - Systematic organization and manipulation of on- and offline programming 
 - Programming environment browsers - facilities for discovery, 
   identification of python classes and instances, other type objects, 
   extensions, etc
 - Programming environment editors - facilities to articulate the things 
   that browsers only let you view 
 - Direct-manipulation ("visual") environment editors
 - etc
