Here is my list of things left to do for the final 0.6 release. I'll try to
capture all of these in a 0.6b3 release which will also be announced to the
Python news group.
0.6 TO DO
o paul boddie import problem
- I e-mailed a suggestion
o app.serverSidePath() seems broken with using MakeAppWorkDir
- sent message to Robin Dunn
- release notes
o discard/redirect stdout & stderr
- Settings design:
'' means to the usual places, eg the console.
None means discard
Anything else is a filename to go to.
If the filenames are the same, then sys.stderr is simply assigned
If a filename is prefixed with '>>', as in '>>stdout.text', then
the file is appended to (eg, opened with 'aw').
- ken lalonde's changes 10/23
- HEAD stuff
- session locking
- session id
- admin password prompt & generation
- DataTable: read all CSV files, have 2-3 separate patches for this

Making a distinction between '' and None seems very confusing.
I'd either use 'stdout' and 'stderr' for the usual places, or else
something other than None for discarding.

That seems reasonable to me. To recap:
'stdout', 'stderr' - the usual places
None - discard
any other string - a file to be written
'>>filename' - a file to be appended
If stdout and stderr have the same string values, then sys.stderr = sys.stdout
