I think they have a pretty good reason to complain. I can guarantee more
people do more web stuff in Python than C/C++. Especially if you consider Zope
to be Python code. Also, I would surmise that Python has OO support
better than any of those languages with the *possible* exception of
Java(JSP) and C++. With all due respect to those language/environments (I
have programmed in 4 of them), I feel Python deserves to be on there.
