That's probably due to a misunderstanding.  The Google toolbar for IE is
darned useful, even if it's only for IE.  It's like saying that writing
platform-specific applications is cute and everything should be based on
posix only =).  Mark's sidebar is not a server feature, it's a client
add-on.  I agree that server features which require a particular browser
are of limited interest if you don't have a particular audience in mind
who has that browser.

OnTopic: If a brave and generous soul set up lxr, bugzilla, and
tinderbox for Python, I expect we'd find more Python users using Mozilla
