Mine was the discovery of the pybluez module.

I had been sweating the task of interfacing a bluetooth GPS unit to my
python applicaton. I googled for 'python bluetooth GPS' and found 20 lines
of python code that had the interface up and running before breakfast.
This included the package install with 'yum install pybluez' in Fedora
Core 5.
