Well, you're an interesting test case for a theory -- some people shouldn't be coding in python...

Python, as I see, is "the coder's language".  It's meant for a programmers who want to write code for the sake of their art -- coding for him/herself firstly (and their community) and secondly for "industrial productions" -- shops that just churn out working apps without a consideration for the art.

In the latter case, tests won't be for future coders in your community, but for maintaining "la machine"  -- the simple, logical machine in your code.

This, to me, is the primary split between those of us who still have high hopes for a true Python3000 (now evolved into python4000 because of release v3) and the rest....

Accurate in your case?
