We'll take these comments into consideration for the pocket reference,
but I think the kind of book you want is more than a pocket reference,
really.  You are describing a different kind of book, a more
full-scale approach to a reference, something like what we plan to do
in our forthcoming Python in a Nutshell (by Alex Martelli).  I would
look out for that book--we hope to get it published by Summer.
Thanks for your suggestions!
