Ah, the curse of Pythonicity Relativism! What has society come to that 
it cannot recognize Absolute Pythonicness and Absolute Perlishness? The 
measure of Pythonicness was given to us in the inerrant Gospel of Tim! 
Every word of it is literally True! Incant the words "import this" and 
you shall see in glowing letters before you the Gospel of Tim. Count the 
number of verses For and the number Against. If the For verses outnumber 
the Against, the construct is Pythonic, absolutely and without 
equivocation for all people as Guido indented.
