Hi, Iain,

I'll fix the documentation for the debug command - thanks!

The commands in 'commands.py' are tied directly to the scripting
language and intentionally don't have return values; I'm still thinking
about how to deal with this.  It's been requested enough that I may
cave and simply put in return values ;).

Here's a short snippet of code that should solve some of your problems:

	from twill import get_browser
	b = get_browser()
	html = b.get_html()

I'm glad you're using twill!  thanks for reporting the bugs ;).
