Hi Jeff,

Congratulations to you and Micheal for the very impressive work with Pippy. 
Even more impressive is that your website seems to be shrugging off a full 
scale slashdotting! :)

I was disheartened though to see in the README that floating points, file 
objects and long integers are dropped (I need those!), although I 
appreciate some concessions must be made to reduce the footprint for Palm.

I notice in the goals that you intend to lobby for incorporation of these 
modifications into the core distribution... Good luck. :) Personally as a 
python PDA application developer, I require the full functionality of 
python and consequently cannot cater to a platform incapable of supporting 
it completely.

Although I'm sure pippy is of great use to your application and I applaud 
your efforts, don't you see PDA capabilities as soon being able to run the 
complete python? 

Good luck with the venture,
Bryan Mongeau
