I decided to move the live site into the 'live' branch, so default doesn't matter or mean anything, and can take whatever merges make sense.

It took not very long to launch web2py at djuber.pythonanywhere.com, and if I can use this for prototyping in django or web2py, I may pay for the larger plan.

Sometimes, when working in Scheme, I'm surprised that pi is not defined. I'd define it myself, but to what precision? My current method is to exploit Euler's identity to get the basic precision supported by log. Is there a cleaner way to initialise this?
(define pi (imag-part (log -1)))

I always thought it was silly if you have the source to 'hide' the implementation. The pointer to implementation pattern in C++ is the ultimate expression of this fetish, trying to move the guts out of the header (since there is a weird amount of required information in the header files) and into the source, where I guess it can be compiled and hidden in object code. Here I disagree with both the sentiment and the technique.
