I wrote a blog post this morning in which I briefly argue using DbC and
predicate based argument constraints instead of static typing. Take a look
if you are interested. It also contains a link to a wiki page where I have
been producing a more refined specification complete with good examples:

I would appreciate some feedback, I want to know what other python
programmers think about DbC and arg constraints.
