Thanks for the references. File `contrib/README' for the next `recode'
distribution already has some of them, and I completed it from your post.
By "bringing closer to Python", I was more thinking more in an administrative
than a technical way.
Technically, `recode' already uses Python to generate its C or Texinfo
tables. Given some free time, I'll rewrite and maintain a parallel version
`recode' in Python, just to make prototyping easier. Python 1.6 already has
a lot of bundled facilities so simple recodings are very easy to do, to the
point that in many cases, a `recode' interface might be seen as overkill.
If I re-implement a parallel version of `recode' in Python, I would prefer
to use bundled facilities, merely checking that they are congruent with
`recode' knowledge, and try to get differences resolved if not.
Administratively, I was more thinking of a site offering Mailman, and mostly
based of Python scripting, or Python synchronisation methods if any. A way
to me, and even for my users, to get closer to Python, even if indirectly.
A kind of fuzzy move in a probably good direction :-).
