This sounds like a good idea to me.  There seems to be an element of
social engineering in the python language, and community, which seems
to be an important part of its success.  There's a lot of leverage to
be had in building it right into the tools.

So I'll quote Richard Dawkins in Unweaving the Rainbow:

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones.  Most people
are never going to die because thay are never going to be born."
