It might have been a good idea to also toss out this description from 
the top of your sourceforge page.

     This project aims to create Application Toolbars (a class of
     dockable window under Win32) in Python. Examples of AppBars
     include the Win32 taskbar, Norton System Doctor's docking window,
     and Mirabilis's ICQ client. An proof-of- concept has been

It may be beneficial to to try and document what you already have first. 
I couldn't find a single doc string, comment block, or file header to 
tell me what to do with this... maybe i'm looking in the wrong places 
but i couldn't even find definate information on something both tiny and 
important: which OS(s) it is designed for. I can only guess that it 
works on windows due to the DLLs available for download.

It is a nice idea though, if it does what i think it does =).
