some remarks being one of the python-mode.el developers and definitly 
the cupable having merged the ipython.el stuff - thanks a lot to the 
ipython.el people BTW.

The idea is to provide a solution already for the Emacs beginner, taking 
the need for several customizations, loading across the net etc.
A Python-mode should assist all common flavors of Python right from the 

Think we should be able to keep the modes compatible. Should you have 
suggestions, how to design python-mode.el in order to meet your needs, 
it's welcome.

Please send your suggestions, bug reports etc.


Certainly we will fix bugs when being aware of a report at other places too.

Should people want to CC me with (i)python-mode related stuff from other 
places, that's okay for me, might be helpful too.
