Yes, I did. And I think this program is a great lightweight alernative
to sage,  which was mentioned in another post and would probably be
my preferred environment if I had complete freedom to set up my working
environment and would not need to exchange  data with others or explain
how someone else is supposed to reuse my code/results in two years time.
Things being as they are, I am looking for a solution which works with 
as few additional components  as possible, so that a solution based on
 a simple copy-and-paste class or decorator is preferable.
