This might indicate that typing is the programming bottleneck, this is not
good. Typing should not significantly slow down the act of programming.
I appreciate Python as a language which is rather unobtrusive in the
programming process, and in which the bottleneck stays my own thinking.
Of course, here, I mean thinking about the problem to solve, not about
the language or library idiosyncrasies. :-)
