Three points:

1.  The tone of this discussion has been disappointing, although my thanks
to those who tried to keep it above board.

2.  There is no point in *arguing* about this stuff, so I won't.  But
silence does not imply consent.

3.  Regarding "adding those features": I doubt you'll find anyone on the
planet less interested in adding new features to the Python *language* than
I am.  Nor am I interested in adding a new module to the library, unless
someone thinks of something really neat.  I was just interested in how to
program.  (Misunderstanding my motives is still no excuse for rudeness.)

Blecch,
Greg
