I don’t see this as a big problem. There’s always lots of people who want to get into Python hacking and don’t know where to start. These are easily digestible pieces that can be *reviewed in a timely manner*, thus ideal. We could even do some (virtual) sprint just on that.
As for Larry: great approach, I’m impressed!
