Not precisely accurate - last published information I read stated that
a Python-based class (6.099) was being developed that would be an
alternative to, not a replacement of, the classic 6.001 Scheme-based
introductory programming course.  It's not yet listed in
http://student.mit.edu/catalog/m6a.html, so I don't think it's online

Maybe I'll ask on the Boston python list.  Somebody there ought to know...
