this kind of got buried in my inbox, and rather than leaving it there
I thought I'd give you a quick response.

Without looking into the matter or thinking about it more deeply, I
don't think I can make any sort of decision about whether or not to
plan something like this for twill.

The idea of making a *general* Tcl-ish layer on top of Python is an
intriguing one, though, and I don't think it would be difficult to
support something like that explicitly in twill.  It's just a matter of
how to integrate it.

I'm in favor of KISSing it as much as possible, basically.

Sorry to leave this so long.  GHOP has consumed me.
