Well, thus far all response has been positive! Obviously I stacked the
deck by alerting comp.lang.py'ers about the article but Perl-mongering
flamers have been conspicuously absent. Obviously some large majority
are going to be mature about it and some other percentage indifferent.
I'm just surprised not to hear from the lunatic fringe. I'll hasten to
add that every community has a lunatic fringe -- Perlers are probably no
worse than anyone else.

Of course the most vicious flamers probably hang out together somewhere
other than the O'Reilly web site...

pyguy is an alias set up specifically for that article so that I can
redirect flamage to my "read this on a rainy day" folder.
