Thank you for making me aware of it. I totally agree with you that 
inefficient complexity should never replace efficient simplicity. SE, in 
fact, is much more a convenient interface complement than a stand-alone 
tool and as such meant to cooperate with the available Python idiom.
      I used this forum to connect with real-life problems, which I 
believe is one of its main purposes. Testing the envelope of my 'stuff' 
I would almost certainly have overstretched it on occasion. And again, 
what's wrong with this absolutely normal development process? And what 
better environment could there be for it than an interest group like 
this one where experts like yourself offer direction?
      I am not targeting newbies (whatever that is). I am not targeting 
at all. I invite response. You had cause to respond as this message of 
yours reveals. But you didn't respond and now your are angry with me for it.
      So, thanks again for the information. Your comments are always 
welcome. I understand your style as an expression of your personality. 
Belligerence passes my notice if I don't see what I have to do with it.
