Things of interest

This post to The Python Papers blog reminded me that I have been intending to release a library a friend and I have written which does most of the work to allow live coding in Python. Writing an article about it might be a good way to get the library out there, and hopefully get some discussion about its shortcomings. Reading a thread on the PyGame mailing list about allowing your game's users to use Python as a scripting language, and how there was no secure way to do this, it seemed like an interesting exercise to see how far the safe expression execution recipe could be taken to facilitate it. It would also be interesting to experiment with that and write an article about it.
