And Python programmers rarely care about types -- that's why we use Python.d

Much to my surprise, a lot more Python programmers are starting to care about static type checking, but that's, well, static, so also not relevant to this idea.

I think we should be a bit careful about how we interpret discussion on this list -- I suspect that the amount of discussion is mostly about how interesting a topic is -- not how good an idea it is to actually include it in Python.
