Ok, Ok...

I beg the forgiveness of everyone whom I insulted. I wasn't aware of
the
term 'Anonymous Coward' and so I interpreted it as an insult. 

Tim - I'm sorry and I won't be making that mistake again.

And on that opportunity, I'd really like to admit that you indeed did
your work perfectly.

I love the Python language very much and I went through hell making my
organization adopt it as its formal prototyping and scripting
language.

Keep up the good work, everyone!
