Thanks for the feedback and the effort.  My main concern is as a user of
this Python -- is there anything I should be careful of when writing code?
For example, it looks like it's a 2.3 release; can I rely on the standard
2.3 documentation (I have ActiveState 2.3.2 installed)?  And a similar
concern for wxPython; I currently have installed on my Win2K
machine.  I'd like, for instance, to be able to create site-package modules
that I can put in both the "stand-alone" and the Chandler versions.
