Jeez, Skip.  Engage brain before typing.  Latter, meet Former.  Former, I'm
pleased to introduce you to Latter.  I'm sure the two of you will hit it

I help maintain python-mode.el.  It is available here:


The XEmacs folks distribute a version of this.  The GNU Emacs folks wrote
their own a couple years ago and christened it python.el.  That looks to be
what's available in Aquamacs.  I see

    ~/Applications/Aquamacs Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/lisp/progmodes/python.el.gz

so, unless you downloaded and installed python-mode.el from SourceForge,
you're probably using the GNU Emacs version (which, as I indicated, I know
nothing about).
