I still don't understand why we are receiving this.  Apparently,
Pythonistas are either not eligible or we are lumped under 'Hackers.' 
If the former, I can certainly understand; it is possible, but
fiendishly difficult, to write obfuscated code in Python, and thus, any
Pythonista submitting *any* obfuscated code would win almost by
default.  The others wouldn't even bother to enter, in that case.

If the latter, that shows what they think of us, and why should we enter
a contest where we are dissed by being shoehorned into someone else's
categories?

Metta,
Ivan
