A *year*? And you have experience with other programming languages? If
you have OO experience, learning Python shouldn't take more than a 
month, and that's long. That's not to say you know _all_ the nice
idioms that Python has by then, and that's not to say someone with a
year of Python experience won't be likely to be better, but you'll
be pretty darn effective after a month, I'd say.
