I don't know about VB but Java does a much better job of supporting
standards than Python does.  Python's advantage is in being a much
more pleasant language to code in.  It would benefit greatly from also
doing a better job implementing standards.  Many or most of the Python
library modules that purport to implement standards just sort of
get halfway there and then stop.
