Cool - glad you find pylid useful!

Yes, multiple base directories does seem to be a useful
feature. I've had a look at your patch for this, and I think
it would be better to pass the -b option multiple times to
indicate multiple base directories, rather than pass a
colon-delimited list of directories. This keeps the
mechanism general (i.e. the rare cases where you may have a
directory-name containing a colon), and it fits in better
with the way pylid currently handles exclusion directories
(passing -e multiple times).

I'll keep an eye on this.

If you find any cases where pylid fails to work correctly,
I'd be very interested in knowing about them. A minimal case
should be added to the unit tests to reproduce the problem,
and then we should fix it....

I'd be more than happy to fold back improvements that are
not too specific to your project back into Pylid - please
keep me up to date if it isn't too much trouble. At the
moment the version control for pylid is internal to
Nullcube, but if there is enough activity I'd be happy to
make a CVS or subversion repository publically available. 

Thanks for letting me know about using pylid!
