I hope I did not sound too terse. I *really* do appreciate the
pointers. Sorry, If I did.

Yeah. Right now, I am just exploring these concepts in Python simply
because its so easy to do it in this language. I am anticipating some
Python development coming up, and in the not too distant past, I had
started coding a software tool (a Fuzzy reasoning tool), knowing very
few Python-ic features. I don't want to repeat the same stupidity.

Thanks again!
