I want to let you know that I am going to package

and upload pythm into Debian main (probably later on this week...
preliminary packaging is already done). It will be based on Dylan's and
my fork of pythm (some changes from Paul TT were already absorbed).
Sources are available from https://github.com/yarikoptic/pythm and
debian packaging will appear in a debian branch out there in the
foreseeable future ;)
