If the goal of what this list and thread is about is to promote python
(which i am sure it is) then the site should use the new and improved
Some shops are stuck on python 2.3, some on .net, some on java, some
with poor coding practices - That doesn't make Python any less
wonderful, and it is the wonderful that we want people to understand.
