No problem.  I'll answer your questions as promptly as I can.

I only published it May 25 of this year.  And then only to
this list and PyPI.

I thought of posting an announcement on the webware discussion list,
but I thought that'd be a bit tacky.  But if you wanted to??  :-)

Otherwise, word of mouth seems to be slowly working.

The software was actually finished in February.  It took me a while to
find the time to write the documentation and tutorial which I thought
crucial before publishing.  Without them (and particularly the
tutorial), I feared it would be lost in the forest of python webtools.

And if you do want to make changes I encourage subclassing; this will
make merging your code with updates MUCH easier.  The joy of OOP.
