Seek, and ye shall find.

(UK, mildly derogatory) A stupid or unintelligent person; one prone to 
making mistakes, especially in language.
You spanner, Rodney! I wanted a Chinese, not an Indian!

Nothing personal in this, I simply find the homour here often more 
interesting than the theoretical claptrap that some go on about.  Not 
only that, from the Zen of Python, "Practicality beats purity".

As for being a spammer, nonsense, it's rather pleasant to see someone 
with real code asking real questions.  Carry on like this and you'll 
soon be on the bug tracker at fixing things, instead of 
the throngs who simply love complaining, but in reality do nothing about 
it.  Hint, hint, didn't you ask on another thread about what module you 
could write for Python :)

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
