Not sure if you've already counted me, but I should point out that
MANY advanced Pythonistas are poly -- we're not averse to coding in
(e.g.) C, C++, pyrex, Fortran, or other programming languages, as
and when the job requires it... and often we do love doing it, at
least on occasion... Python is our primary, but cooperates so well
with other languages that it doesn't discourage such flings at all!

Only problem, if problem it be, is that Python's just SO sweet and
sexy that it may make other lov^H^H^H languages pale in comparison,
so one may end up losing the habits and needed flir^H^H^H^H coding
skills unless one practices assiduously...
