Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Oct 11)

QOTW: "As revealed by PSU Research Paper 'UU788', the real reason is a side
effect of the nanovirus encroaching into non-whitespace, as first proposed
by 'UU355' and then earlier proven (twice, as it turned out) by 'UU6 9'.
The only defence is t*^$Z:%Z* NO CARRIER" - Richie Hindle. He appears to have
survived the... unfortunate incident.

"What do I have to say to get into the QOTW?" - Dan Python, who finally
realized that Dan Perl is not going to cut it as a name.
Johannes Eble is looking for software te help replace Matlab with
Python. Respondents recommend the combination of SciPy and IPython.

Irmen de Jong is looking for a way to make an object temporarily
read-only. Alex Martelli comes up with a clever,
obvious-when-you-have-seen-it approach of changing the class of
the live object.

Global interpreter lock of CPython and multi-CPU scalability are
a recurrent theme in comp.lang.pytho n. The current concern involves
the upcoming availability and popularity of multicore CPUs.

PySQLite, the python interface to the SQLite embedded relational
database, hits 1.0.

Carlos Ribeiro provides Erik Johnson a simple explanation of the
mechanics behind class and function definitions - a simple matter
that confuses many, especially people who think Python has such
things as 'declarations'.

Alex Martelli shows how we should use the plain objects returned by
object() as sentinels.

Robin Becker needs to determine whether an object is a sequence.

Boo 0.4.3, the Python-like language for .NET/Mono CLR, is out.
