Next week:  more working code, less territorial posturing.

    Quantitatively, the Pynews of the month was a conflict appar-
    ently about whether P-languages are in conflict.  timbot
    left no doubt about his ownership of the intellectual high
    ground with a 160-proof exposition of Perl and Python as
    comparably inferior to SNOBL.  Pathos, concision, the yacht
    race, public double dereferencing--the only thing it lacks
    is a gratuitous reference to Erlang

    The great Pythonist social event of the year is the Open
    Source Software Convention, now in progress.  Early reports
    have it "well-organized"; David Ascher's tutorial was
    successful.  Look next week for more detailed summaries

    Logistics of the Eighth PyCon are largely set.  Presenta-
    tion proposals are still being accepted

    A builder.com columnist reinforces the current run on
    pugnacity with his characterization of Python as "The Most
    Elegant Scripting Language You'll Probably Never Use"

    Christian Tismer shows what "dynamic module generation"
    can mean in the hands of a master

    In the process of giving the one-line answer to the FAQ
    about trapping users who click on the go-away-X, Guido
    and Fredrik Lundh discover themselves trapped in one of
    their time machine's loops, as they jumble inspiration,
    intention, implementation, and documentation

    Another high point of the language wars is Tom Christian-
    sen's mention of Nigel Chapman's book.  Although two
    years old and on a subject other than Python, it offers a
    lot from which we all can learn

    Prolific M.-A. Lemburg's mxProxy provides in its 0.2 re-
    lease not just fine-grained access control to objects,
    but also powerful weak reference methods
