A few things: why is it called "tcpwatch" when it only watches HTTP
requests? A better name would be "httpwatch". Also, the fact that it is
written in Python doesn't really matter. You should not mention it in
the short description, and it has not much use in the long description
either. The tag system is a better way to indicate that this program is
written in Python.
