Since all you client people say you don't make Gopher+ clients because there 
aren't any servers taking advantage of it, no more! :)
But, I have some questions about how things work in PyGopherd.

How do I get multiple views of an item? I have a client.png file on my server; 
I tried just having a client.gif, but that did not work.

And more the way of bugs, for extended attributes,  like abstracts, if you 
define a mapping for example admin, it would overwrite the other information 
for that attribute. I found this out by trying to define an items copyright in 
the ADMIN block. I remember reading in gopherd, that you can have a diretory 
have a different admin, how/can you do this in PyGopherd? The only way I have 
figured out only does the main directory.

PyGopherd also defines the wrong item type for sounds, if you read the Gopher+ 
spe, it is not s, this is also incorrect in the UMN curses client.

And while I am complaining about everything :), in bucktooth and PyGopherd, a 
selector manualy marked as a Gopher+ server is ignored in gophermaps.
