| seriously, what are the major shortcomings in Python
| from a Smalltalk professional's perspective?
| 
| let's see:
| 
| -- no blocks (lambda doesn't really cut it)
| -- type/class dichotomy (CPython implementation)
| -- no garbage collection (CPython implementation)
| 
| what else?

It's not as easy to play with metaclasses in Python.  But that isn't
needed too often in Real Programs anyway..:)
