You can guess, probably, my reaction.  This is an identity issue within the
Python world, not spontaneous occurrences. And, you are right, unrelated to
the programming language itself. 

Python, according to its enthusiasts, is the perfect tool for enterprise
development and for 12 year olds.  

Python3.0, of course, will remove the barriers for the 8 to 12 crowd, while
adding new enterprise functionality.

Sound reasonable? 

To ears other than those of enthusiasts.

Ah.. for the middle ground.
