While I'm not really thrilled by thePpython convention of requireing a
class method to explicetly declare "self", I find that better than using

I also use Perl a lot and get really tired of $_ and @_ as shorthand for
something in the current scope.  It's convenient, but not always clear

The last thing I want is for Python t obe more like Perl
