I emphatically agree. Syntactic type declaration is considerably out of
place with Python.
Although I was thinking about about something which might be useful.
What if Python were to support a type consistency check on containers?
>>> mylist = [1,2,"alpha"]!
Type Consistency Error:
Note the exclamation point.
