This is very cool!  Thanks.

What are the criteria for including a group in here?  How often are they

In particular, it looks like you've got most of the Python, Zope and
ActiveState groups, but I note several MIAs, eg: pybsddb, ZODB, wxPython,
etc.  I see you've even got the newly created PythonCard group in there.
