Thanks for that link, Mike!

I've now DL'ed the small file, and am in the process of re-DL'ing
wxPython (computer crashes and slow connections 'R' me :-) ) which
Jeff's work appears to depend on.

Jeff Raskin is someone I have lots of respect for. I'm quite curious
to see what he's got going, here.

Hmm... Perhaps, there *are* quite similar projects to the one I
posited, already extant. Good thing I *did* post here -- there's a
wealth of info and links to such available here in c.l.py. I may be
able to just add input to existing projects. 

Thanks, again!


off-to-finish-that-DL'ly y'rs,
Richard Hanson
