after an enjoyably marathon hacking session yesterday, we now have an exciting new class of python objects to play with.
dealing with python is a little bit like playing with legos. all the elements fit together; you can turn five or six basic pieces into a robot or a tree or a house or practically anything you like; if you're still not satisfied you can buy a specialty kit and voila! suddenly your robot/tree/house has wheels/turrets/guns/windows!
as far as i and my data are concerned, table.py is the functional equivalent of the death star II.
