You've made your feelings about turtle.py abundantly clear. I would only 
suggest that (contrary to your implications) we benighted individuals

passionate, moral and even (perhaps) intelligent. Or at least we deserve 
the benefit of the doubt. ;)

However if our discussion of the module bothers you that much, I'm happy 
to move it to off of this list.
