Well, I suppose it's supposed to be a secret, but Guido and Just haven't
talked in 17 years come Wednesday.  IIRC, something about a bottle of wine
and a toilet seat, and a small but energetic ferret.  Just hacked his way
into SourceForge access (those skills just run in the family, I guess), but
every time he hacks onto Python-Dev Guido detects it and locks him out
again.  It's very sad, really -- but also wonderfully Dutch.
