what would you like to see in a 2nd edition Nutshell?

I completely agree. I'm also waiting for an advanced Python/project
management book that helps folks out with large-scale projects.

And, for the 2nd edition, may I suggest:
- coverage of OptionParser module, which is more advanced than the
getopt module that you discuss on page 141.
- better Mac OS X application building coverage. Tell us how to build
double-clickable applications.

I wish I could ask for wxPython coverage (the whole chapter on tkinter
is useless to me), but I won't start a flame war here.
