     Been there, done that.  I've actually used an original refrigerator
sized Symbolics LISP machine.

     I tend to think of Python as a LISP with infix syntax.
We have a better handle on what to put in a dynamic language now, and
Python does a good job in that direction.  I'm happy with the
language; it's the integration with external components that isn't
