I have. I like the Python model.

Personally I don't see it as a shortcoming.

No not at all. Just look at all the PEPs and the changes in the language
that have been made in the past. Python is very much community driven and
that shows in it's progress.

You on the other hand keep talking about emo things like 'sane' and
'madness' without giving any technical backing about these problems
that you are having with the language.

Snap out of that, make it a real discussion and maybe something good
will happen. Or not :-)
