I agree.  I've been working on an app in Python, next to a rather
large commercial app in MS C++.  The error messages I get back from
VC++ are like a maze of tokens and expressions.  The Python errors I
get are succinct and to the point.  I've been deciphering VC STL
messages for some time now, but they don't really get much easier. 
Python makes it downright simple.
