Well if you got Jython under your belt,  you've been exposed to Python
2.2.1?  Jython, If I recall, just released a beta for 2.5.2 which is
outstanding.  It was kind of behind the curve with the cpython
implementation, but has been catching up with it quickly.  (For those
lurking in the crowd, Python is a language standard.  There are
implementations in C, Java and other languages.  cpython is the c
implementation of the language and the one that most have heard about.
Jython is the Java implementation of Python.)   Have you ever played
with Try/Except/Else/Finally?
