Sorry , for the previous message, the machine just froze on me and somehow
ended up being sent incomplete. Please pardon any errors.
So as i was saying you could dig deeper into the source of the python
bindings a good documentation reference to what is happening in them can be
gathered from the included comments and annotations , most of the other
stuff can be found in MSDN documentation for each of the specific protocol.
A major method I used to look at the python docs of the latest version was
using pydoc, this together with the aforementioned stuff is quite enough.
When in doubt drop a mail or ping on irc.
