Re: [Python-Dev] Re: super() harmful?

Then why is the title "Python's Super Considered Harmful" ???
Here's my final offer. Change the title to something like "Multiple Inheritance Pitfalls in Python" and nobody will get hurt.
Or better yet, considering the recent thread on Python marketing, "Multiple Inheritance Mastery in Python" :-).
I'm sorry, but that's not good marketing -- it contains big words, and putting the brand name last is ineffective. How about
Python's Super() is Super -- Over 1528.7% Faster than C!
BTW, it's important that fractional percentages end with an odd digit. Research shows that if the last digit is even, 34.1% of consumers tend to suspect the number was made up.
