Ran FakeLion over our current project. It's actually pretty cool just as a design tool. The text is backward and in a weird "font", so you aren't distracted by what is says, you just see the site's layout with text-where-text-will-be. With this being the third time we've used it on the ...
Just ran into a South migration issue. Basically we had a field that looked like this (simplified):
class MyModel( models.Model ):
hostname = models.CharField(
default = random_unique_hostname,
where random_unique_hostname() was written like so (again, simplified):
test = generate_random()

I've just done a bit of hacking to make the (Py)OpenGL.raw hierarchy a little more "normal" looking when you read the auto-generated code. There are now functions declared, the functions are then annotated with decorators to make them into wrappers (which actually replaces the original functions). Doesn't really affect how the ...

The transformation-matrix stuff worked pretty well, but so far the frustum-culling code isn't happy. I'd like to get the rework done before releasing a new version of OpenGLContext ...
