What's the coolest thing you've done with Python?

Years ago I created a music composition system roughly based on Postscript's save and restore transformation based graphics state concept that has now become ubiquitous in the graphics world. It particularly allowed the creation of self similar fractal type compositions. I tried to do too much (I should have skipped the real time performance system) and never got enough finished to share. Now that there are so many music platforms to build on top of I may try to resurrect the composition part of the package. It was the only part that had anything unique in it.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

Object oriented python design.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

Realtime embedded control, FPGA design and verification.
