Although both Mike and John by this time are aware of Mike's mistaken 
attribution of the "rant" to me, I feel compelled to point out for 
posterity (i.e. anyone searching this thread in the future) that it 
wasn't "Peter Hansen" who produced the rant in question, and that
I do NOT feel that Python is changing too quickly.
