FWIW,  I'm a chemist and use Python at work in bursts.  I'll spend maybe
one week coding every few months.  I *always* forget the 1/3 == 0 thing
between programming bursts.  OTOH, I also quickly remember after making the
mistake the first time.   It's not a problem when I'm using C, because I'm
more conscious of type when I'm working in C.   But, I think it's very
unpythonic to have to worry about integer vs float types when doing simple
