There's no dearth of _excellent_ commercial outfits that can sell
you support for Python!  For example, ActiveState, which is likely
to be where you also buy your commercial support for Perl; SecretLabs,
for pure-Python focus; etc, etc.  If somebody's willing to buy,
they can really get their money's worth from any of these outfits --
as well as, I'm sure, from very good freelance consultants that
may have advantages such as being local to your location (for old-time
managers who like to get their support face-to-face rather than
via the net:-).
