Yeah, that's what I was looking at.

I know how demotivating w32 can be to work on :-)

While I'm somewhere close to the subject:  two questions about PB. 

1) Where the heck is pb.Root defined, anyway?

2) I can't help but notice that all the pb example servers involve an
application as the foundation, as opposed to using reactor.run() as the
event loop. Is this significant?

Reason for asking: I've tried to implement my first attempt at a
pb-enabled app (nods at etrepum on LJ) and am getting nowhere. The
server runs with no errors, but the client can't find the remote object
to talk to. I don't need anything complicated: one remote_ method is all
I need for the whole enchilada.
