Great (he says, whilst thinking about the hmaccalc package).

Hmm. I'm not fluent in python. To me (as I date back to when there
were really only two common Unix scripting languages, Steve Bourne's
shell & the C-shell) it's a read-only language . . . Perhaps it would
be best for A.N.Other to put up {her|his} hand and say {she|he} will
assist you, KB.

So, readers of this m/l, who will be first to raise their hand (for
the good of the CentOS-5 user base and to take some load off
Karanbir)?

Alan.
