Hi, replying to many emails here:

Yes, it is only evaluated at startup, I'll add a menu entry, probably at
the Scripts menu (Scripts window), to re-evaluate on-the-fly once when

That makes it three confirmations, including mine, that it works on
linux : ).

There we go. Some scripts will need more work later, like the Wavefront
obj importer/exporter.  Once I get confirmation that things are working
in all platforms, I'll email bpython list and forums with info on the
new additions, so script writers can start using them.  Many scripts can
benefit from the 'Submenus' tag, for example.  Thanks, Kent!

Ah, good catch, I'll fix that together with a couple other things.

That's a good idea Douglas, thanks.  It'll be useful to have a minimal
version requirement warning msg, like Martin put it.

I'm curious ... thanks Nathan, I sure need help on that front to get it
