Guido succumbed to evidence.  Which you will not let yourself succemb to.
Beginners don't care. The only beginners - high schoolers - who had the
nerve to post up here doing the debate, said so clearly.  Their teachers
overwhelmingly confirmed what they said. None of which speaks ultimately to
the design issue, and what Alex prefers and why he prefers it.  But it seems
incredible that you would not overcome the temptation to press the beginner
issue.

Because that's exactly were the discussion went off track Round One, and
will continue to go off track.  You know what you know from your own
experience. As I know from mine.  And if I were working with twenty did
API's a week, as you might be, I might see better your point.  Its an
advanced users issue, if its an issue at all.
