Um, despite my criticism of Istvan for jumping on an innocent
announcement, he does have a point (even if he presented it a bit
harshly): this is a Python list, not a Boo list.  A lot of people here
may or may not be interested in Boo, just as they are with Ruby,
Haskell, Lisp, et al, but that doesn't make it an appropriate place to
seek technical support on any of those things.  They have, or can start,
their own groups.
