Very cool.  And 2.0.4 is a pretty solid release, so hopefully we won't
lose many of them :-)

One thing we should do in the coming days is update kde-apps.org. Barth, I think you're the only one who can do it...

OK.  I'll try to do it this weekend.

Seems  like a good idea.  Are you aware of any policy issues with
having them cross-listed?

I want to shoot for our next release in one month.  Hopefully with an
'beta quality' scripting implementation.  Scripting is working pretty
well for me.... I'm actually using it to analyze star formation data
:-)  It is very convenient!  The big issue remains how to make the
compiled C++ stuff portable on the python side.
