According to Guido's Foreword from Programming Python:
Readability is often enhanced by reducing unnecessary variability.
When possible, there's single, obvious way to code a particular
construct. This reduces the number of the choices facing the
programmer who is writing the code, and increases the chance that
it will appear familiar to a second programmer reading it.
I guess he loves reducing variablity, if possible, which is totally
against TMTOWTDI. I don't judge whether it is good or bad.
