Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jul 14)

QOTW: "I'll claim without proof that how mixed-type comparisons work
with Python classes is also beyond wizard prediction in all cases: the
implementation of comparison in Python is crushingly complicated."
-- Tim Peters

"Honest to God, if it doesn't have coloured cells all over the place, then
they [the engineers] kind of stare at you like rabbits caught in the
headlights of an oncoming car." -- Mark Carter
