I'm not sure what you're talking about...mainly because I'm not sure
what you mean by a "symbols file". But I did some google-fu myself and
found this CookBook entry:

http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Cookbook/Python/Recipe/200638

And this thread seems to be talking about symbol resolution, I think:

http://www.python.org/search/hypermail/python-1994q2/0605.html

And here's some weird site that claims to have a list of inseparable
symbols, whatever that means:

voicecode.iit.nrc.ca/VCodeWiki/public/wiki.cgi?
obj=ListOfUnseparablePythonSymbols

I can't get it to load unless I use Google's cached version though.

Hope that helps and that I'm not too far off the mark!
