I have ActivePython 2.4.1 Build 245 (Win2000)
when I run
>python happydoc.py
I got an assignment to None error.
I replaced all occurrences of None= with none=
it it is OK.

scanner.py line 196 I changed to:
            home_cvsignore_filename = '.cvsignore'

BTW, the tar release has happydoc, not happydoc.py (?)
