I agree.  Thank you, Andrew,  for all of the work you've put into
creating on the consistent high spots of comp.lang.python for the
last serveral months.

One of the reasons that I haven't followed up on the python-dev stuff
as much as I should is that I'm almost exclusively working with Zope
these days and it's still stuck in 1.5.2 land.  Looking through your
window at 2.0 and 2.1 one makes me drool a lot, but I haven't got any
experience with it, just opinions.

Thanks again,

Dan Pierson
