Why? I mean, actually it is easier in a single file if you use emacs,
because you use IM-Python to browse the classes. And if you use eric3, you
don't care about how many files, since you use the class browser to move.

Maybe I don't realize some advantage of splitting the code...

Anyway, I will need to partition the code in some way, because I want to
make two versions eventually: a gnome-panel applet and a kicker applet.

This was my first thought, but then I thought 1) it would be too slow 2) you
type only once anyway. The preferred method is to use the recent filters

I am a bit ashamed, but here it is:

THE DEVICES ARE COMPLETELY INVENTED. I need to scan the devices in the
computer, but I am clueless how to do that.

Are you implying that there is some concept you don't like?

Thanks a lot for the feedback!
