    The first release candidate of Python 2.7 is now available for
    testing:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/e3cd74b1797162ca/

    __getattribute__ can influence how a method is searched - but how
    to
    influence how it is called?
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/50c5d1cded9fde8e/

    Current options for GUI libraries are not good, so we need to build
    a
    new one. Is that true? [long thread!]:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/b2ef3a1f41b516ec/

    Another long thread starting with a vague problem description
    involving
    HTML form handling, and gradually building a solution. Along it:
    "CGI
    for dummies" and "The right way to use FormStorage":
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/c532d28d5b550ead/

    Some tips on approaching the Python source code (C) by the first
    time:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/299649a2ba6a9792/

    Bogus benchmarks leads to bogus conclusions (in this case, that map
    is slow)
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/c6793a86ce70a4ca/

    optparse: how to deal with non standard options:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/a25b905b27195798/

    Reasons for not allowing usage of ctypes in the standard library:
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/msg/be62be9e8f9ab77d

    Why any() instead of firsttrue(), which seems more useful?
    http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/t/c11a9b6e0cfd9c25/

    More ways to sum two integers than you ever thought:
