Python's biggest compromises

In general, I suspect BASIC is more defined by compromises than
Python.

To me there is a compromise in Python's dependence on C. It seems that
at some point I will hit a performance or feature issue that will
require me to write a C extension. It seems to me VB6 has a similarly
awkward relationship with C++. Clearly the creators of Python were
expert C programmers; that should not be a requirement to become an
expert Python programmer.
