FWIW, and without meaning *any* criticism of the structure of the Python
development project, or of Guido - I find this inappropriate verbiage
for a langauge comparison.
A) there *can* be at least some doubt, one hopes. by someone, sometime,
someplace. Can't there?
B) it ain't a language feature in any case.
And FWIW, I feel compelled to comment of this kind of thing
as someone whose enthusiasm for Python is firm.
Does it feel more hand-crafted? Yes - to me.
Is that a good thing. Yes - to me.
