That's been the original pitch since some time. These days there are
creative lies also around some other companies
which may have couple of teams working on Python, and I sometimes paint a
picture that half the world runs on Python.

Problem is actually consultants are somehow trusted more, than a peddler of
services from a small IT shop. And since consultants also bill as a percent
of the project costs, they want to ensure that stuff that'll take more hours
to write, more hours to maintain, and almost always ends up in extended
budget costs get sold...

Well that's sad state of affairs....
