Well, not quite: it's certainly a mess ATM -- it was just a "0.0.1"
release, after all! -- but certainly not an unrecoverable one, IMHO.
OTOH, I'd quite understand if anybody other than me wouldn't want to work
with it until I'd cleaned it up a lot, of course! (and that's not likely
to happen :-( ) By far the worst part was the DOM stuff rather than
python-spidermonkey. I certainly planned the DOM code as a prototype to
throw away later. Still, I've seen much cleaner-looking spidermonkey
wrapper code since (some of which I posted to the wwwsearch-general list),
so maybe even I would start afresh, I guess that's possible.
I've heard of a few people actually using it (some even for real work,
which does scare me ;-).
