Which reminds me: there are whole classes of users who come to Python
because it's the embedded scripting language in their application.
Everything from SPSS through Blender and Maya to ARC geo now use Python
as their scripting language of choice. These people surely need help too
(and maybe the commercial vendors would like to help?)

Not to mention the many users who learn Python to use Django to develop
web sites.
