I'm kind of stuck on something seemingly trivial, and I'm hoping someone can 
help me out. Say I have a block of text, all in lower case:

this is some sample text. its all in lower case. there are no capitals in 
this block of text. you get the idea, and now i'm just typing to make a lot 
of text.

What I want to do with Python is take the first letter of each sentance and 
capitalize it. By looking into the string library I've found the 
string.capitalize() function. This only seems to work if you know the word 
you're trying to use. Then string.capwords() will capitalize each word 
instead of just the first one.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for this?
