That's one reason why I love python. The syntax is easy.
Evey newbie should be able to read my code.

Do you like ugly girls? Most persons prefere 
nice partners. 

I don't like lamda, too. You can always define a function:

def mycmp(a, b):
    return cmp(a.myatt, b.myatt)
mylist.sort(mycmp)

I hope Python will stay a beautiful programming language.
