It's been a relatively quiet week on Pythondom.
 Those of us in the States, of course, are 
 mentally preparing ourselves for an onslaught
 of fowl, football and the imminent arise of
 Christmas decorations.

We have an announcement form Ben Gertzfield of
 CDDB.py, a program to fetch information about 
 CD audio tracks online (Linux only; GPL'd).

The main emphasis this week seems to be on 
Python internals, object models and parse
trees, oh my.

One thread has Greg Ewing continuing his 
 exploration of Ruby's internals (and 
 contrasting them with Python). This week
 it's object models:

John Skaller talks about the same subject, 
 showing how Viper (his pre-release Python-like
 language) deals with the same issues:

In an unrelated thread, Greg Ewing provides
 some hints on how to extend Python's grammar:

Michael Hudson announces release 0.60 of
 his perverse bytecodehacks:

While John Aycock previews an alpha Python
 decompiler:

Along the same track, David Jeske announces 
 that work has started on pylint.py, a LINT
 for Python focussing on type-inference:
