Yes, explicitly using implicit acquisition.  I'll give you that.

Possibly not.  I've often been thown into the deep end of projects.

I was referring to Guido's Python Reference Manual, which is less a
reference of python modules, rather a reference of how python itself was
written.  No offence intended.  There's lots of python in both Zope books,
and I refer to them regularly.

I can take that advice.  Seems reasonable enough, and makes the python more
reusable in any case.

I'm currently trying to write the interface to integrate a wholesaler XML
response into our database and finding myself falling between XML stools.
My notion was to convert it to a local XML format before importing that to
the database.  I figured that this layer would insulate against change in a
similar manner to the above, but it seems that generating xslt
programmatically is not something that people are doing much yet.

Thanks for your time.

Christopher.
