  i'll look at UML, not sure i want to learn yet another
language on top of python.

  my goal in learning python was to use it as a way of 
picking up OOP concepts in a more concrete way (theory
alone doesn't give me enough hands on the bits i need so
i tend to just do other things instead).

  now that i've used python for a starting project and 
have that project mostly working i want to step back and 
work on the OOP aspects.
