QOTW:  "I'm ready to bet a good lunch at Bologna's best restaurant,
wine included, that dependencies will become much more common, i.e.,
that reuse will indeed have been encouraged."  Alex Martelli [on
CPAN, Python and dependencies]

    "Release candidate 1" brings the final release of Python 2.2 one
    step closer.

    It may have seemed stupid to ask how a Python program can be
    distributed stand-alone, but how often does jythonc get
    mentioned in response?
        http://groups.google.com/groups?th=40655c77b2331e34

    Some time ago, Paul Tchistopolskii regarded Zope as being the
    Windows 3.0 of the Web. That may seem harsh, but there haven't
    been many protests - perhaps he has a point...

    Comparing like with like, now, and a more straightforward
    comparison has to be between the Apache components mod_python and
    mod_snake. If you want to do CGI-like things, but faster, a few
    suggestions are offered.

    Alexandre Fayolle inadvertently rises to the challenge of last
    week's "Python-URL!" with a summary of interesting XML modules.
        http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=slrna1ci7t.9tl.alf%40sagittarius.logilab.fr

    And on the subject of "Python as XML", whatever happened to Xython?
        http://sourceforge.net/projects/xython/

    Mygale seems to make the "Python-URL!" editor's job redundant...
    or easier?
        http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html

    Talking of vaults, whatever happened to the Python CPAN?
        http://groups.google.com/groups?th=2ab22a9d10d675a3

    Well, Suchandra Thapa exposes ciphon to beta testing.
        http://groups.google.com/groups?th=add05b3ce874d380

    And remember the Software Carpentry project? Well, here's the
    first release of SCons - the build/make tool of that project.
        http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=mailman.1008305779.12195.python-list%40python.org

    Meanwhile, here's an SMTP server written in Python. Just in
    case you ever needed one.

    Wanted: speakers for a Python event in the United Kingdom.
