Perhaps the problem is I didn't understand that such a claim was being
made. I thought it was a reference to access to extensive array
processing functionality. I am happily lost in the discussion beyond that.
Function-level, value-level, whatever.
I am the last to claim that Python is easy.
I do claim that it is not effete. These distinctions, to me, fall into
the realm of the effete - and are not where I prefer to spend my time
So I perhaps wasted your time by asking you to expand.
