I know it has been discussed endlessly, so just a gentle reminder about the final arguments would be good. I think I remember it was discussed recently, mentioning that join() doesn't convert elements to strings?

This came up while reading this speculative article about how programmers migrate from one programming language to the other (I call it speculative because there's no hard data, but the conclusions and comments pretty much match my experience and my observations over decades [I would add an arrow from Python3 to Rust]).


In that sense, I think it wouldn't hurt to make Python more familiar/friendly to people coming from other languages, even if it breaks "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it."
