PythonDSS: A suggestion for a book and accompanying software distribution

I think there should be a good market for a Python book that focuses
on the use of Python for decision support work, especially financial
decison support which will include financial data warehouse building,
data analysis, modelling and reporting/visualisation. It should be
"how to" book and not a rehash of existing Python language books. The
book should be accompanied by a Python distribution that includes a
core set of modules that covers the areas relevant to decsion support
systems - similar to what Enthought ( does with
their Python (Enthought Edition) whose focus though is on scientific

Obviously, a PythonDSS book will be a long time coming. In the
meanhwile, perhaps those interested could suggest through this
newsgroup, what are the "best of breed" modules to include in the
proposed PythonDSS. Obvious candidates for inclusion would include:
Numarray, Excel connectivity (pyXLWriter?), a relational data base
(?), OLAP-type facility (PyTables?), ReportLab, etc.
