#Name: simplegeneric
#Version: 0.6
#Summary: Simple generic functions (similar to Python's own len(), pickle.dump(), etc.)
#Home-page: http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/simplegeneric
#Author: Phillip J. Eby
#Author-email: peak@eby-sarna.com
#License: PSF or ZPL
# This is version 0.6 of Philip J. Eby's simplegeneric module
# (http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/simplegeneric) patched to work
# with Python 2.3 (which doesn't support assigning to __name__)
