I read your post.  I don't see the contradicition.  I think the cost
per LOC of developing in Python isn't too much different than for
other languages.  I also think most software metrics including LOC are
crap.  The stuff that controls the real costs is very hard to
objectify.  So if you have to use some numerical metric, you may as
well use LOC, it's not great but everything else is just as bad.
