I'd really like to hear what others have experienced in the way of
Python-specific practices. I don't think I have any that are truly
Python-specific, but many "good" practices are really supported,
encouraged, and enhanced by Python (unittests, simple and straightforward
code, trying new pieces of code out a little at a time instead of writing
a lot and throwing it all over the cliff, consistent style, constant
refactoring, platform neutrality, etc.).
