Oh, good idea ! It'll also give me a good place to dump the two/three
threads I have been saving in my inbox ;) Barry, Tim, I was also keeping the
discussions on parallel-iteration and list-comprehensions. If you need
those, I can send them as a nice little (hee hee) mailbox.

Is there any reason not to include them in the standard Python licence, the
same as the documentation ? It is documentation, after all, even if it's
