What does the BDFL have to do with the usefulness of psutil?

I'm not likely to download it, but here's a ref from the docs:


Return files opened by process as a list of namedtuples including file 
absolute path name and file descriptor. Example:
 >>> import psutil, os
 >>> f = open('file.ext', 'w')
 >>> p = psutil.Process(os.getpid())
 >>> p.get_open_files()
[openfile(path='/home/giampaolo/svn/psutil/file.ext', fd=3)]
