This is getting close to a HOWTO, I imagine, but some text describing
what it does and how it does it would be nice. The focus here should be
on the DTML code (or possibly Python code), though. What would be nice
is 'instant demos'. That is, you have a code snippet, a demo
demonstrating it, and an explanation/description. The demos are what
sucks a lot of people in.

That would be another alternative, but I imagine people were thinking
about the (new?) ZDP site for now.
