But before Georg returns the keys, he should make sure to install this
on docs.python.org. :-)

(I like it, but it needs some work. The login page needs instructions
for people who've forgotten how to use OpenID. There needs to be an
introduction on how to use the comment system at the root of the site.
It would be nice to allow anonymous comments (with a way for site
managers to turn this off on a per-page basis). And it would be nice
if there was a pop-up with snippets of comments when you mouse over a
comment bubble.)
