Hey Jakob,

This is very interesting (at this point I'm just lurking), but has
anyone pointed out yet that there already is something else called
VPython, which has a long standing "right" to the name?
http://www.vpython.org/ -- "3D Programming for Ordinary Mortals".

I hope you can find a better name for your project, otherwise there
will be no end of confusion...
