hooray. docs, tar.gz. It's only a small & simple comparative sequence analysis library for DNA, but it's been broken for about a month. (Asinine data structure, refactored yo' ass.)

Ryan Tomayko comments on GPL vs the Python community. My work-related libraries are LGPLed, and my GUIs and Web interfaces are GPLed. Why? I'm an academic programmer, and my code is owned by Caltech. Neither I nor Caltech depend on income from these programs. However, I do intend to take them from job to job, and the GPL protects that. The L/GPL also protects Caltech. win/win.
