I'm describing best practices based on long experience of using and
developing and teaching and writing about Python stuff. Others have
other priorities, it seems.

The tutorial tends to describe mechanisms, not best practices, and it
also assumes prior programming experience. After all, basic stuff like
"minimize coupling" and "don't depend on implementation artifacts" apply
to all software engineering, not just Python.
