Python is not Pascal. For me it s BASIC of nowadays. Really basic, 
simple and clear (even for non-specialists) language. Not old BASIC with 
line numbers, GOTO, GOSUB and 1- or 2-symbol identifiers, but modern 
language with modules, structured programming, powerful basic data 
structures, OOP, first-class functions, automatic resource management etc.
