Throughout tfmpk's life I got some feedback. Bug reports and many good suggestions. I did not keep an organized filing of these and thus many contributions may not get the credit they deserve.
Much of the initial recommendations and encouragements came from Nelson Beebe (http://www.math.utah.edu/~beebe).
Other important reports came from Allin Cottrell (http://www.wfu.edu/~cottrell/).
Python's indentation semantics still leaves me with mixed feelings. Still I am grateful to Moshe Zadka (http://www.ma.huji.ac.il/~moshez/) whom I heard giving a wonderful Python introduction talk and Eric S. Raymonds (http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/). Both convinced me to give Python a try. (But, I still like C++ and despise the NRA).
James Henstridge (http://www.daa.com.au/~james/) helped me with imortant tips for interfacing pygnome's GnomeCanvas widget in C/C++.
And I must thank my family, for letting me ignore them every once in awhile.
