	If "Learning Python" had been the first book out, we might now
be swamping PERL <G>

	At least I haven't found a Python book as bad as two (of 6) Ada
texts at Computer Literacy. In both of those texts, the reference to
"task" was in the list of language keywords. The entire tasking system
built into the Ada language was tossed out of these books. What was left
was "Learn Pascal using Ada Syntax".
