do design patterns still apply with Python?

It's been a while since I looked at the design patterns book and I
don't know whether it discusses sandboxing.  I'd guess probably not.
As for whether any of the GoF book patterns are easy in Java but
difficult in Python, it's a good question and I don't know the answer.
Maybe the book has some patterns involving interfaces.  I'm a rather
low-tech Java user and I'm not a fan of the language, so I'm not a
good person to ask.
