One word in favor of Scheme as a teaching tool for the functional code paradigm
(not as an actual development platform) is that it is nearly impossible to *not*
write functional code. It's a straitjacket.

How would you (automatically) enforce that in Python to teach the programmer?

Is there a lint ruleset for "bad" procedural practices? or Eclipse plugin?
