Well, writing a book is the best way to actually learn something about
its subject :). It's like when you're teaching a group of people. The
best experience I've had of this phenomemon is when I was giving some
Microsoft Word classes to some student ; properly explaining the style
system requires to actually understand it. I would never have found
out about anonymous style inheritance otherwise ;).

As for a mod_python book, I really think this should be done based on
the future 3.2 release rather than based on the 3.1.x versions.
