Hi Isr,

I googled around, and found a third-party library for dealing with RAR


Oh, it's Jimmy's module!  That's cool!  He's a regular at the Bay Area
Python Interest Group (http://baypiggies.net).  Let me just CC him so he
knows that I'm plugging his module.  *grin*

RAR appears to be a compression format used on the Windows platform, so,
unfortunately, I can't test his module very easily.  Does anyone else have
experience with it?
