[Baypiggies] Why I went from Python to Go (and not node.js)

That's a very interesting post.

If I understand well, the author of the post wanted something like gevent
combined with multiprocessor, and all that without monkey patching, so
basically have this natively part of  the language.

May be that's the killer feature that was missing to make people convert
from python2 to python3. I often hear people complaining about GIL and
multithreading, even in the multiprocessor module documentation it is
described as way to bypass GIL.

Which brings me to my dream python 4 (since putting all that in python3
would be too major of a jump):
- Allow cython syntax to be supported with or without compilation (e.g.
typing cython in interactive mode with cdef etc..., and in compiled mode
instead of .pyc files, you'd get .so files)
* that would bridge the gap between weak and strong typing and bridge the
gap of script versus compiled performance
- Natively support a multiprocessor-gevent paradigm
