This sounds like a great idea. A suggestion though - since we're all
Python hackers, why not create a hosted website on AppEngine?
Presumably there should be no cost to operate it, considering the
amount of traffic it'll get. Also, we can host the code on github or
something and use it as an example of a Python-on-AppEngine app. Two
birds with one stone!
