Why did you do that?
Would you download and try Zope, in order to judge about Python?
Would you say C is a bad language, because you (perhaps) don't like
Last time I disliked a movie, I really thought celluloid is a bad idea.

and I don't expect enthusiasm except from my kids, perhaps.

But I don't need kids as Stackless users.
