I'm just using the command line interface via os.system and the popenX
The only thing that (unfortunatelly) not possible, is to remove a document

If you need any help, just drop me a line.

Did they? If they succeed, Chandler will rock. My personal opinion is that
they try doing too much at once. I guess that a better filesystem will make
most of the document management type applications obsolete.
The big problem, of course, is to define 'better' in a meaningfull way.

Or go the other way: build a new filesystem prototype application in python
and see, if it works out as intended and then build a proper file system.
