This issue is constantly presented as some sort of dichotomy between
"regular" programmers" and newbies. But really it is more of a 
dichotomy between those originally trained on typed languages and 
those on dynamically typed languages.

The other languages in the Python category (Perl, Ruby, JavaScript, ...)
all make a different choice for division and the choice is
uncontroversial. Python is the only one of the languages that has a
constant battle on the issue.
