Cool!  A pity you can't take part.  But latest 
at the next EuroPython we should do another sprint.

I really want to get a repository going soon.  
You code should be checked in there. I'd love 
to have people porting various bits of C-coded 
stuff into pure Python.  Though i prefer coding 
myself i would take some time to organize 
such an effort.  Help with organizing this C to 
Python effort would be much appreciated. Think of 
testing (sic!), nightly builds, SCons etc.pp.

I'd prefer to do this on a subversion repository
which we (at codespeak) hopefully set up pretty soon.
I guess i am not the only one eager to try this
out.  If it there are big obstacles we resort to 
good old cvs. 

Sorry for (ab)using your contribution for this 
interwoven half-announcement.
