[snip excellent stuff]

Well, I'm amazed at, and grateful for, all the time and effort you
guys put in. I also received an excellent reply by email. So a big
thank you to all. 


P.S. I agree that this would be a valuable resource on a webpage as
Andrew suggested. It get's pointed out quite often that concatenating
strings in loop is an expensive operation in python and I have always
tried to keep that in mind but it is much nicer if you understand why...
