And why everyone seems to think we do it already in that case but
isn't quite sure :) (I'm in that camp too).
Just point your web browser at http://www.python.org/search/ and
look for "program", "doesn't", "work", or "my". Whenever you find
someone else whose program didn't work, don't do what they
did. Repeat as needed. -- Tim Peters, on python-help, 16 Jun 1998
