many years ago, I stumbled upon the 99 bottle page, and
found a C-written-in-Python-syntax example, so I sent the
page maintainer a nice new Pythonic example, without all
those extra characters...

unfortunately, I couldn't keep myself from adding a much
more obscure example as a postscript.

guess the "pythonic edition" look too bland, or something.
