The problem I have with this is that I might discover an error at runtime
instead of compile time, this means that I need to really exercise all
possible test cases to make sure that I've covered everything (which of
course is a good thing) but it would be easier to discover this at "compile
(note: I'm not trying to change Python, only that to me statically typing has
it advantages also)
