Tis Arthur, from a different e-mail account,

> Arthur, can you clarify the position you are arguing >*against*?

The truth is my polemics are in fact not purely related
to substantive issues.

Alice is visible and has an impressive list of  'sponsors' -
from NASA to Microsoft.

That's good and its bad, from my perspective.

What set me off most recently, as Stephen Figgins knows, is
finding three references to it (out of five total) in the Education category
of O'Reilly's Python Dev-Center.

Which began to confirm to me, in my own mind at least, my
worst fear, since I had first raised the issue - that Alice would become too
closely identified as the Python representative to the world of education.

Stephen has explained to me I misinterpreted his intent.

Also, that fear is more real in the context of an evaporated
EDU-SIG. With EDU-SIG rocking, I'm more relaxed.

So I'm happy now to let it be.
