Hrvoje wasn't explicit on *why* this discussion is inappropriate here,
so I just add that for better understanding:

python-dev is for the development *of* Python, not for the development
*with* Python. So you post here if you propose an enhancement or discuss
the resolution of a bug. Question of the "how do I" kind are off-topic -
posters are expected to know and understand the options, and then
discuss the flaws of these options, rather than asking what they are.

As Hrvoje says: try python-list (aka comp.lang.python). If you don't
get an answer, you didn't phrase your question interestingly enough,
or nobody knows the answer, or nobody has the time to tell you.
