Nope, not yet, but I will. (You folks will end up making a Python 
programmer out of me yet, I expect... :)

This and the C extension interface are the two big Python things I've got 
on my "must peer deeply into" list. Are there other places I should be 
concentrating on? (I'm poking about with the interpreter loop and 
associated code, but that's the sort of thing an expert with 20 minutes 
free will get me much farther than a week or two with the source)
