But surely in the time you've been considering the use of Python --
particularly now, since you claim to have to decided to use it as one of
your main development languages -- you could have taken a few hours or
so it would require to read and really absorb the tutorial (much less,
of course, if you're already a competent programmer, as you claim to
be)?  You've certainly spent a great deal more than a few hours since
you first started posting your questions here, which was more than two
years ago (first coherent Python-related questions appeared in 2001
April, according to Google Groups).
