Driving traffic to a site with ads, and especially one whose content is 
also available as a paid book, is a real benefit. Google's fortune is 
based on that benefit.

I actually think that would be fine on wiki pages where any python 
writer can add links to their stuff. I already suggested that there 
could be one for module. There could also be some for statements and 

The book I am working on will discuss function def statements with 
emphasis on while and for loops. I would love to have links to it in the 
while, for, and def sections of the reference, but I presently would not 
expect that -- only some mention in the wiki.
