Religion: Well, I'm not an atheist, but atheists should have an issue with Advogato. There is no way to say someone doesn't exist. The default certification of an observer means that they exist, therefore everyone on Advogato believes that God and Satan exist because everyone at least has them certified as observer. Oh well. :)

Thanks for the email, but there definately needs to be more expansion of the docs on PyTypeObject declarations. Also, listobject.c doesn't show where/how/when PyList_New gets called. Right now I'm assuming that I create a module with a routine that does the instantiation of the type, which would make sense, but as you have found out, the docs in this area (at least the offical docs) are non-existant. Glad that you are going to work on the docs, and if you'd like a newbie to review them, send 'em my way! :)

Still need to decide what I want to use to develope a dynamic web site I want to create. Debating if I want to go with fly (which I happen to know the people who developed it, and I hold the mime-type for them), or create my own in python. Probably should go and see about installing Postgres (oh, that's right, I already have it installed, just not doing anything with it) and playing around with it. fly should be really fast as it was written in lex/yacc/C. The fun of db work.
