Exactly!  I have close to zero free time and would not be able to do
it right now nor in the near future.  It may be that this means we get
to use the current pyepl for awhile, making improvements, but no major
overhaul (i.e., no pyglet for now.)

Here's a couple more thoughts on pygame vs. pyglet:

 - pygame is very mature and well-supported.
 - pyglet just had it's first release and has a single author.
 - One can see on the mailing list that, while pyglet's author is
quite skilled, he is also relatively set in where he sees the future
of pyglet (there are some relatively contentious threads with
discussions of suggested features and improvements.)  Please note that
I could be misinterpreting the tone of the thread.
