That's the funny thing about Python. It really isn't simple, but it sure 
seems like it is. There's tons of little niggling rules about scoping, 
inheritance, and what have you--but you can be blissfully ignorant of 
most of them and still get work done. That's pretty unique.

I think that's why people are so concerned about @pie: it has the 
*potential* to be an obstacle early in the learning process, instead of 
after someone is already hooked.

Goodness, no! Why do you think we've all been pissing and moaning so much?
