Moreover, one of the key selling points of Python is that it can 
interface with anything and everything found in any environment!
Rather than e.g. conjuring up a closed circle with own replacements for 
everything than forces everyone into the lowest common denominator like 
Java does.

*That's another key reason why I use & suggest using an installation 
"native" to the system whenever possible.*
It's as close to "being an integral part of the environment rather than 
rejecting it and creating an inferior copy" philosophy as one can get.
