I don't have the Python experience.  I do have the C++ experience.  You
guys' talk of the horror and gloom and doom of C++ sounds like another
planet to me.  So clearly I'm having some kind of experience in C++ that you
are not having.  What it sounds like, is you guys blow your legs off with
all the fancy C++ stuff, because you're in group environments where people
don't know how to Keep It Simple Stupid.
