Ok I just wanted to chime in hear. This thread sparked an interest since I
am a java developer.  For a couple of years now I have been moving a little
closer to programming in Python.  I already wrote a couple scripts at work
in python, mostly just wrappers.   It did not take long at all to get going
with it, compared with php or java.  And the code looked so much cleaner
than similar php or perl scripts.

So with that I don't think it would be hard to find a python developer.
Just hire a good OO and scripting developer and you're set.  Good
programmers write good code in any language.

Let's just say you get what you pay for.  That's not to say that php will
not get the job done.  I refer back to the Good Programmers/Good Code
