Re: Sad conflicting packages comment 000

Well, I was suggesting that if enough people asked for it, then the authors of the respective packages (i.e., me and Patrick O'Brien) would probably be willing to include that code for compatibility's sake.

Patrick doesn't do much with PyDispatcher these days AFAIK, but I'd certainly be willing to incorporate changes that would let the two packages coexist. Heck, if I recall correctly from our earlier discussion the two packages can actually be dumped into the same directory and both continue to function as expected.

Hmm, should have finished reading the whole comment thread. Apparently Patrick is all over it :) .

# Mike Fletcher

I'm more than happy to defer to you, Mike, since you've been shepherding the code for some time now. I appreciate all the work you've done to make the code available, fix bugs, add enhancements, etc.
