Not sure, as a user, that I'm a great fan of the mutable
- One can usually rely on data files to stay put, and not to start
rewriting themselves (well, ok, at least on non-windows OSes ;-/).
- Do I want to be forced to back up 10Mb of Python+Metakit every time
I back up my data?
- Other than that, as a user, why do I care?
As a developer, what does this approach offer above tools like py2exe
/ Installer &c?
I am underwhelmed by the idea of dynamic debugging. Seems like a
solution looking for a problem.
