Apparently, the author of pycotap never seen my  
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/bayeux (tapestry -> Bayeux) and so 
we have effectively duplicated effort, although his project is 
couple of years younger. Contrary to Bayeux, pycotap also 
doesn't use proper YAMLish parser/producer (just prints it, 
bayeux uses my other project YAMLish 
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/yamlish/ which passes a complete 
test suite from the Perl YAMLish module), so I am not sure how 
reliable it is.

Joining two FLOSS projects is always awkward idea, but I would 
love to do whatever we can to remove this duplicity.



P.S.: Hmm, apparently keywords are no longer supposed to be 
a list and they are now space-separated string; that feels
