Well, in a way. In fact the current docgrok and the Grok object
introspector are tied up (or "integrated"), where the latter uses
functionality from the first, where appropriate. So you can examine a
ZODB object (introspector) supplemented by information grabbed in the
respective package by docgrok etc. So 'introspector' in my proposal
means both: the ZODB browser and the package browser. I should have make
that clearer in my proposal.

By "documentation tool" you mean the Grok introspecor/docgrok? And by
"object inspectors" basically a ZODB browser/information gatherer? Well,
why not? What do you think, Jesper?

I forgot to mention: if we have really an oversupply of student
applications I'd gladly retract my own, so that first others get the
chance I already had last year.

Kind regards,
