No need to get your knickers in a twist.  Every couple years someone asks,
"why isn't Python written in C++?"  The lack of good C++ support for many
(minority) platforms is often the primary explanation.  If that's changing,
I have no problem with it.

I spent a fair amount of time with Google trying to find representative
threads here or in comp.lang.python but failed to find any needles in the
haystack.  Perhaps you will have better luck.
