I figured that probably they hadn't used Python in any of their 
editions, but hoped that maybe they or someone had a Python version 
stuck away somewhere. I'm currently borrowing the FORTRAN version of the 
book. It looks to me like that some of the software they provide can be 
found in some math libraries. I see the book has the authors e-mail 
addresses, so I'll contact them directly.

How is it that when you post to this list that I do not see 
astropy@scipy.org in your header?
