Wouldn't it be better to port the good stuff to Python?  Same for Ruby-on-Rails.  The more we fork, the longer it will take to get Python where it belongs, ahead of Java in our curriculums, preferably at the Freshmen level or earlier, with Java, C++, Ruby, etc. for those who are going to be full-time programmers.
