For the Python wnck module, or for screenlets? I'm afraid that 
technically I am well short of the ability to do either. I am more than 
willing to help anyone who elects to so, though.

Incidentally (and this is addressed to Rod mainly), the ClearWeather 
module was broken. I had to hack it a bit to get it to work properly. It 
got confused over proxies, but since I am not unfamiliar with Python, 
that presented no difficulty.
