I just wanted to say that wow, the CoreGraphics module in 10.3's python
is awesome.  Very neat, and I'm sure we're going to see some really cool
stuff come out of it.

Making pdf's has never been so easy.

import os
from CoreGraphics import *
from urllib2 import *

html = urlopen("http://www.python.org/").read()

pageRect = CGRectMake(0, 0, 612, 792)
ctx = CGPDFContextCreateWithFilename("python.pdf", pageRect)
ctx.drawHTMLTextInRect(CGDataProviderCreateWithString(html), pageRect)

os.popen("/usr/bin/open -a Preview python.pdf")

If whomever is responsible for this at Apple is listening- thanks!
