At least on topic in regard to the above anyway ;-} and somewhat
on the topic of what doex language X have that makes it more attractive (or
less attractive) than Python, I'd like to say that it almost seems like Python
is not that far away from allowing as a language feature:

from import *


from import graphics

where "" is some internet node.

It would seem that such a feature would embrace and
include as part of Python the Java capability of
incorporating classes over the net and up the ante on
the .net initiative (remember what I said
about ignorance here).

Wouldn't this go some way towards solving the problem of
encouraging more module sharing a la Perl's CPAN but in a
Python-esque way...?
