Why?  While I would be bothered if English ceased to be the main language
in c.l.py (because I'ma typical rude American who knows no other
languages ;-), I think the occasional non-English post simply reflects
the international nature of Python.

I heartily encourage people to partly ignore Mr. =?ISO-8859-1?Q?P=E9rez?=

something other than ASCII as the $NAME.)
