yeah, sams weblog package and ViewSVN :-D. Zope is something I totally 
don't understand on looking a little closer, for example. I mean, 
there's a ***class*** named Interface! I am a big turd when it comes to 
python. I can write like 3 lines of code in one go and then things start 

I would just love to see how Sam sets this up.

I like darwinism. Didn't someone volunteer to setup forrest as a webapp? 
Not that that worked well for me before, but I don't see why it cannot 
be tried or even mixed with python stoof.
