Well, I consider myself  a consultant of the second kind. Using Python for
maths/stats (often meaning decision support systems) or science related
custom software is what I prefer to do .. But I also tend to enjoy
"firefighting" web projects because they pay well and they are never
boring.. rather on the contrary.. :-)

...and I second what you said in parenthesis.
So my interest follows.

Though one could surely have two divisions of a huge guild. :-))
