Could it be that Python has better libraries, is faster to develop for, attracts

be *because* Python doesn't have DbC.

I'm not sure how you get from the lack of DbC being a feature to python's success.

I use DbC in my python code via the asserts and its been very useful in my experience.

If there was a nice way to get better then the assert method I'd use it. Like Angus's PoC.

I assume that developers that are not interesting in DbC would simply not use any
library/syntax that supported it.
