I have accepted the fact that Python has become a two-level language: basic 
Python for expressing algorithms + advanced features (metaclasses, 
decorators, CPython-specific introspection and hacks, and now possibly 
'with' or whatever) for solving software engineering issues.  Perhaps there 
should correspondingly be two tutorials.
