First of all, I want to second Patrick's suggestion that this be FAQ'd.
I have one nit, though:

I believe that there are more jobs for good Python programmers than
people with the skills to fill them.  My company is certainly having
difficulties (jobs in Mountain View! ask me!), and having HP Cupertino
advertising for 10-12 Python positions only increases the difficulty.

I think we've come to the knee in the curve where Python has achieved
critical mass and will get a lot of popular attention over the next
couple of years.  Few of us need worry about job security.
