Doeas anyone at google realize the threat?

Mr. van Rossum should have 100% of his time for working on Python at 
least for around 3 to 6 months.

50% for working on it (whilst simply having fun, as he should)

50% for _decoupling_ the strong-dependency of the python-development 
from his person, thus python-evolution is ensured. This would involve to 
clarify, document and to communicate the need to the community (which 
seems to partially have a strong dependency, too).
