Hi All,
  I have a strong point to make. The ONLY purpose of the Usenet, as I
see it, is to spread knowledge. Unfortunately, far too often too much
is made of "off topic" thingy. If a post in it's basic theme is
appropriate for a newsgroup (as this one is) then there is no reason
why any replies to that post, even if seen deviating a bit from the
main theme, should not be posted.

  In particular, comp.lang.python lurkers (like me) who have followed
this thread and are not as knowledgeable as Oleg would certainly like
to know what he did with the DOS Extender.
