now you know why i set strict coding standards so that you can pull
up 12 xterms on-screen side by side.

this is why i said to focus on a tiny task (20 lines).  you then made it 5x
larger, hence why you are struggling.  wark :)

yes, sigh, not enough docstrings due to not enough time.
does not help that external dependencies are the same way.
only reason i can cope is i am used to it.

i also went through the same "err what the hell" thing.
i just hide it.

> So was what I wrote in "testing_stage1.py" not at all relevant to stage 1?

it was... if you want to increase the work needed for stage 1 from 20 lines
to about 100.

suggest this:

1) use dummy_pinset the original
2) enumerate the dict and create Resources using
   format in comment #10 and comment #12
3) create a Platform() and call its build function.

this is literally 20 lines of code.
