Introducing WOMBAT

Yesterday I got around to release WOMBAT, the WorldForge Open Media Browser/Archive Tool. So finally I'm coding for WorldForge again after my last project stalled a little. Like plunger, WOMBAT is written in Python. WOMBAT makes use of the Pylons webapp framework. Apart from the brain-dead egg distribution mechanism, it's really neat. From the developer side of things, the framework gives you a lot of help to work on features, not web glue. I still have to get the FCGI connection to Apache working, but so far the demo site on my home box works fine standalone. Thanks to NAT, I can even pretend it's a real web server.
