Dear John,

This approach has already been tried by Dave Angel, Steven D'Aprano and 
Chris Angelico amongst others and has failed dismally so why should you 
be any different?

I've taken a different approach. I've put the contract out to tender and 
hereby give you the winners 
http://www.mudefordwoodcommunitycentre.co.uk/playgroup-and-tiny-tots/

Part of the rationale is that they're literally 100 yards from my front 
door so communicating with them effectively should be extremely easy. 
This will be particularly useful when it comes down to debugging such 
difficult issues as "> TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable".

I'm looking forward to working in partnership with them and am convinced 
that within a few days all of Nikos' problems will have been solved.
