It's been a couple of days since Holger Krekel's post to the "Buffering
control in python?" thread and I haven't seen anyone start up a thread
on this subject, so I'm starting one. I'd also like to see this happen.
I don't have server space to contribute, but I could help with coding,
administration, etc.

Holger's original post is duplicated below.
