I'm sorry if my poor wording caused it to come across that way.
Pascal was a very useful language, it with a perspective that was
different than its contemporaries because it was originally intended
for educational purposes, rather than as an academic language like
lisp or a hacker tool like c or fortran.

I enjoy writing python a lot, and would prefer to use it rather than
ruby/lisp/java/etc in most cases. My suggestions come from
frustrations that occur when using python in areas where the right
answer is probably just to use a different language.  If I knew that
what I wanted was at odds with the vision for python, I would have
less of an issue just accepting circumstances, and would just get to
work rather than sidetracking discussions on this list.

Thanks, and again, sorry!
