Nope, I didn't say that at all (and I don't think that putting words in
people's mouths helps this discussion at all). This is open source: no
one can "force" anyone to do anything, not even Guido. I mentioned Ian
and Michelle because they know the players, have worked with most of the
candidate systems, and have demonstrated that they're willing to listen
as well as talk; there are undoubtedly other people who could "play
Guido" just as well.
p.s. Ka-Ping Yee was "just an undergrad" when he started contributing to
Python; I don't remember anyone thinking that ought to disqualify him.
