I've been asked to help getting Rendevous (AKA zeroconf I believe)
bindings for Python implemented. Anyone interested in helping out?
(The person to contact if you're interested is Daniel Steinberg.
Please cc me on the initial emails so I know contact is being made.

Hey Guido,

    Here's the description of the task from my friend Daniel Steinberg
(CC'd here) at O'Reilly.  I understand that you don't have time to do
the work yourself, but I'm hopeful that you know of someone who would.

>>>> Ruby developers can easily Rendezvous enable their application.
>>>> There are also Parrot and Perl bindings on the way. The question

>>>> good at teaming up with someone who is to help them see what hooks
