My apologies. You are right, I meant optional, static typing. Thanks
for the catch Jeff.
Python's dynamic typing is just fine. But if I know the type, I want
the ability to nail it. ...local variables, arguments, return values,
etc And if I don't know or care, I'd leave it to dynamic typing.
The need for a lot of doc goes away, those new to the language that
think it's a big deal can be explicit, and as I suggested earlier, I
think the byte code interpreter could be made a lot smarter and
faster. ...and corporate acceptance would follow.
