Slick indeed! I don't see much that's beyond Python's grasp. The
syntax of course would be more Pythonic, but you could probably put
all this in a module, hook it up with distutils, and hack out
something rough in a day or two. Tim will port it to Windows along
with a frozen cygwin gcc compiler in a huge frozen binary. Viola!
