No way. I've given "print>>blotch,horror" a try as fair as the fact
that it curls my blood allows, and I still detest it just as much as
when I first saw it. So what? I'm not gonna fork Python over this,
obviously -- Python still gives me by far enough value to pay for
the extra dental work needed by all the teeth-gnashing that the
detested "print>>tippedoverchevron" causes me, though I do plan to
send Guido the dentist's bill, obviously.
