What else would you consider useful?  I'm only really aware of the
most straightforward uses of CObjects (and wonder if the advanced uses
actually see much use...).


  Just point your web browser at http://www.python.org/search/ and
  look for "program", "doesn't", "work", or "my". Whenever you find
  someone else whose program didn't work, don't do what they
  did. Repeat as needed.    -- Tim Peters, on python-help, 16 Jun 1998
