Thanks again for your kind replies.
"The biggest problem that I see in your line of thought is that many of the
worst languages have gone down this route only to become a complete mess of
random compiler-does-what-you-meant rules. In the end it just adds
complexity and only helps out a few newbie's. "
For sure, i don´t want nor like a messy language with thousands of
features that would satisfy any randomic newbie wish. I want a compact,
clean, robust, simple, coerent and friendly language: everything that Python
promissed to be. Of course, such perfect language won´t 100% satisfy
everybody, but then it will be a case of "Love it or leave it".
"...guido often asks, "what is it that you actually *need* to do?" are you
actually struggling with a limitation that's preventing you from doing what
your need, or is your answer, "it would just be nice", or "it's more
pythonic". if it's just "nice" or "pythonic", he won't listen."
If i understand well, the good developers of the language have too much
work to deal with changes that would fit in the fundamental principles over
wich the language as prototyped (Zen of Python, for example) but are not
indispensable for make a piece of code works. I think that it is a pity
that they are too busy.
I would like to emphasize that my first e-mail told about 2 examples of my
own taste, but made mention about Python warts/gotchas/pitfalls described in
some internet pages. Some of the features descibed there are already fixed
or planned to be fixed soon. Still i feel that Pyhon 3000 won´t bring deeper
changes as it could be. ;(
I have nio more questions.
Good luck and good work !
