Hi all,

thanks for the suggestions, Danny.

Chandler interest me a lot -- the personal itch I'd like to program a 
scratch for is PIM-related. (I've made a start, but I'm quite a while from 
feeling I've anything to speak of.)

But Chandler seems to gigantic for a first real 'code read'. Also, when I 
downloaded 0.2, it seemed like a lot of MB little (obvious to the user) 
functionality. Something closer to a working product seems a better idea.

FWIW I've seen (in the sense of 'read the web page') a couple of other 
Python PIM's:


Thanks again,
