I don’t know how to define eigenmethods in Python. Can someone fill me in? They were talking about borgs.
The Python solution is gleaned from this bug report. Contrary to what

dir() returns strings anyway. The issue is that you can’t do the rough equivalent of
I added an all articles view to Snax to make it easier to find old posts. Also the category pages use the new concise view.
