I second that emotion. Dr. Mertz's "Text Processing in Python" put my
brain in a knot and opened up whole new worlds to me.

I just about did a backflip when I saw that Dr. Mertz was interested in
this project. :)
Judging by writing style alone, both in his book and online, he's a
fantastic teacher who will bring weight to the advocacy branch of this
project. Hopefully we can get him coding, too! (I'd like to use some of
the gnosis utilities for XML processing).

We're extremely lucky!
