(Sorry if this appears twice, accidentally included c.l.py.announce
the first time where it was (correctly) rejected, not sure if that
means it didn't get through to c.l.py either).

Interesting.

Would be nice if tarball contained a top-level directory rather than
unpacking directly into the current working directory -- people on
traditional (non-Mac) unixy systems don't expect that.  PEP 8-style
module name (snobol.py not Snobol.py) would be nice too.
