Leo + Python: the ultimate scripting tool #3

Reasons why Leo and Python work so well together:

3.  Scripts may use the structure of Leo's outlines.

This is a first "big" reason why the combination of Python & Leo is
spectacular.  As shown in the example above, scripts may get access to the
headline or body text of any node in a Leo outline.  Therefore, scripts may
use the _structure_ of the outline to gain access to a) other scripts, b)
fragments of code for exec or eval or c) other data.

It gets better...
