Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (May 9)

QOTW: "It's not perfect, but then nobody in this thread has offered
anything even remotely resembling perfect documentation for regular
expressions yet. <wink>" - Peter Hansen

"Python's flavor of OO is perfectly valid and usable, even though it
doesn't follow the Java Holy Bible of Object Orientation (gasp!)" - Hans Nowak

"It's highly arguable if Python is "better" than C#, but from a
control-your-own-destiny angle, Python is a complete slam dunk. Python
works well on *nix, Java, .NET and Mac OS X. It's open source. It's
sane. But I won't argue it's fast. It's usually just not so slow you
care." - Jonathan Rentzsch
