I used to work for this firm. I can assure you it is definitely a serious Python shop.

So 10 years ago would be what, Python 1.4? [0] How many of us 
even knew the

language existed that long ago, let alone wrote anything more than

overglorified shell scripts?

Point being, if you *really* want someone with that much experience, you're

severely limiting your applicant pool and it's going to cost way more than

$100K for a person who doesn't 
suck.

This ain't Java, 
folks.

Skip?

Yeah, I'll jump on this bandwagon, too. I happen to be one of 
those
people that was using Python 10 years ago, but it was just an 
accident.
;-)

I find statements like that just ignorant and make it obvious 
that
either the people or the company don't really understand what they 
are
asking 
for.
