Then I think you would be better of writing your own package in Python.
You should probably use mod_python, and then start from there. This will
probably make you understand the problems better than reading someone
In other peoples code is a lot of steps down the wrong path that you
simply don't see. But these wrong paths often contains a valuable lesson
for a programmer.
Others might disagree, but I find this to be the most effective way of
learning for me.
When I do a learning project like this, I am agressively using "proper"
methodologies like patterns, XP etc. This way it is possible to learn a
lot in a short amount of time.
