    I think there should be a good market for a Python book that focuses
    on the use of Python for decision support work, especially financial
    decison support which will include financial data warehouse building,
    data analysis, modelling and reporting/visualisation. It should be
    "how to" book and not a rehash of existing Python language books. The
    book should be accompanied by a Python distribution that includes a
    core set of modules that covers the areas relevant to decsion support
    systems - similar to what Enthought (www.enthought.com) does with
    their Python (Enthought Edition) whose focus though is on scientific
    computing.

    Obviously, a PythonDSS book will be a long time coming. In the
    meanhwile, perhaps those interested could suggest through this
    newsgroup, what are the "best of breed" modules to include in the
    proposed PythonDSS. Obvious candidates for inclusion would include:
    Numarray, Excel connectivity (pyXLWriter?), a relational data base
    (?), OLAP-type facility (PyTables?), ReportLab, etc.
