Tom, you might have done reasonably well the rest of your Python
homework, but that is a very dumb statement. Tcl is typeless. Python is
rather strongly typed and proud with that. The fact that the type
checking is done at run-time might admittedly screw the minds of C/C++
guys. And optional static typing (ala Dylan) is planned for Python 2.0.

Regards,
Alex
