Speaking of wasting bandwidth, please snip out the parts of the post 
you're replying to that are no longer relevant. Also, you may notice that 
James *did* answer the question, pointing out the relevant parts of the 
PEP that you neglected to mention.

Note too that James' signature is seventy-three characters SHORTER than 
his message.

There's something to be said about users who, having made an unhelpful 
and almost pointless post, then follow it up by spewing venom and bile at 
the person who made a gentle and reasonable comment about that 

I guess some people just can't take criticism, no matter how well-founded 
or how gently it is put.
