I am trying to understand the various, imho, religious subcultures(*) in 
the Python world, and I need someone to explain what the heck "Pythonic" 

How do you judge if something is "pythonic" or not?

(*) the most prominent example is the "zope is not pythonic" thing that 
goes around a lot.

As reference, I have a strong background in the Mac-vs-Pc wars since 
before 1990, so I know a religious subculture when I see one ;-)
