I have not yet negotiated with O'Reilly about a 2nd edition of the
Nutshell, but I do suspect they'll be quite happy letting me write one,
_after_, as RH says, the 2nd edition of the Cookbook (we're still
targeting March 2004 for that one).  Considering the times involved etc
etc, I believe it is out of the question for the 2nd edition of the
Nutshell to be in print in time for OSCON 2005 (==July 2005), alas.  So,
don't hold your breath: I believe it will be _at least_ a year from now
before you can buy the 2nd edition of the Nutshell in bookstores:-(.
