I hereby declare my script in perpetual alpha-testing stage, and
therefore won't be making it public, since I intend to make money out of
this [1] collecting all translations in a book called "The effbot's
guide to pythonology" [2].

You're messing with the time machine again, right?  Your patch is
probably for nightly build 20071202032501 .  At the moment, most of the
script logic (and bugs :) is concentrated in line 2:

what_to_print = raw_input("Translation of /F's single line reply? ")

[0] got it right this time

[1] Ska vi dela femtio-femtio?

[2] which book will help you improve your own python use, hopefully :)
TZOTZIOY, I speak England very best.
"Be strict when sending and tolerant when receiving." (from RFC1958)
I really should keep that in mind when talking with people, actually...
