Actually, Python (just like any high level language, even perl) IS a nanny.
The only language, that is not at all a nanny is machine language
(not assembler, but really the raw bytes), and no human would actually
*want* to write that.
PS: I know, I know, a little exaggeration never hurts, and makes for
a good QOTW :-)
