Because of this, a Google search for

  "<name> <surname>" python

may sometimes help; when you get 116,000 hits, as for "Steve Holden"
python, that may be a reasonable indication that the poster is one of
the world's Python Gurus (in fact, the winner of the 2007 Frank WIllison
Award -- congratulations, Steve!!!).
