Hi Eron,

Our only UI so far is the audio version for the visually impaired. It
would be great to see a set of requirements including use cases and mock
up screens for the demo user interface. Are you up for a first cut at
that?

I agree that we should move the .pyc files off to the attic. As far as
Distutils is concerned, any quality open source projects we can build on
we should use for the demo as long as the dependency is clearly listed
in our README. A clean install is something that would certainly aide
our demo. My vote would be to go for it.
