Hi Keith,

True enough. There are plenty of choices. At the end of the day,
the only thing that matters is how any solution helps people
solve their problems within their constraints.

So, yes, while there are plenty of choices, we believe people
will be presently surprised by what they can achieve when 
using SPM.Python. As the new player, we believe we must 
provide at least one of the following:

   * 10x smaller scripts ... mainly because parallel primitives are 
         much closer to intent,

   * 10x increase in productivity ... because scripts are much
         more fault tolerant; i.e. no need to handhold various 
         parallel jobs  

Otherwise, in this economy, why should anybody waste their 
time dealing with us, right?
