Nolo contendere (not having looked much into Alice yet), but are there
stand-alone didactical materials for Alice as there are for Oz?  It
seemed to me that the available materials for Alice basically take SML
somewhat for granted, while Oz does come with tutorials which make no
analogous assumptions.  If you're recommending Alice as the second
language for somebody whose first and only language so far is Python,
what URLs and/or books would you point them to, for self-stufy?
