Noteworthy items this week from Pythondom:

    Michael Stroeder announces pyCA-0.6.2 - a set of
    scripts and CGI-BIN programs written in Python for
    setting up and running a certificate authority using
    OpenSSL.
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266414
 
    Sean Reifschneider announces sockserv, a SMTP/NNTP/POP-
    like server module that makes it easy to create command /
    response type servers.
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266413

    Tony Ibbs announces v0.3 for his metalanguage for
    mxTextTools
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266415
    [Note: mxTextTools features an unusual and extremely
    fast parsing engine with an incomprehensible API; Tony
    has been slowly chipping away at making the interface
    non-hostile for a year or so.]

    Mike Fletcher posts mandelbrot.py 
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=554408930
    which shows off both wxPython and the Numeric extensions.

    The subject of automatic garbage collection returns, this
    time with a practical cast: Fredrik Lundh on how it would
    be helpful:
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553393467
    James Logajan on why he prefers the current approach: 
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553396826
    And finally, Bijan Parsia gives pointers to some modern
    GC implementations that should ease James' concerns.
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553786287

    Tim Peters exposes his impractical bent, and shows that an
    apparently simple "lottery" game isn't so simple:
        http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=552877307
    and
