If everybody would think like this, the world will never learn about
anti-patterns, and the software craftmanship collapsed in astonishing
agony some years ago. If it doesn't make it clear - it is not
randomizing - it is putting beliefs to the test asking for the current

It doesn't matter how do you sound, what matters is that you spoiled
the fun to discuss the technical part no matter how long ago it was
invented. If you have a lot of people who ask the same question -
create a FAQ.  That's not a vast and broad experience - that's just a
time proven practice from usenet times.

Common guys, what's wrong with you? It is just an idea, not a proposal
or scientific paper. And I am not a scientist - I just want to discuss
the idea, and I am not sending mails to python-dev anymore, because
you asked to. I've spent some time trying to make the idea
interesting. It is fine If you know a scientific paper about the
matter, can explain it in a few words and send a link for more
details. But the replies like "you're stubborn and ignorant, and
nobody should help you" doesn't make you a better person. I am
criticizing, because I lack time, motivation and fantasy to write
stuff about good and bright sides in my life that I just don't see. I
write because I see bad things that can be better, and I am still open
to discuss if it is real or not.
