I think not enough is made of the fact that Python combines legibility
and power better than any other platform.
Paul Prescod says it very well here:
"I get paid to share my code with "dufuses" known as domain experts.
Using Python, I typically do not have to wrap my code up as a COM
object for their use in VB. I do not have to code in a crappy language
designed only for non-experts. They do not have to learn a hard
language designed only for experts. We can talk the same language.
They can read and sometimes maintain my code if they need to."
