I'm afraid it's too late <0.5 wink>.  In response to a msg where I urged you
repeatedly to read the darn PEP, and spelled out what a small role Alice and
VPython have played in all this (perhaps seminal, perhaps not, but a drop in
the bucket regardless), it's still the only thing you talk about.

That's fine, but you should argue with the VPython developers now.  Your
argument surely isn't with Python's PEP 238, because you've had nothing to
say about the PEP!  One last time:  VPython is irrelevant to PEP 238 at this
stage.  If you want to talk about the PEP, cool, but I don't have time to
care about VPython.
