Interesting. I find Java much more predictable with APIs than Python
actually. Java has pretty strict rules for style and API design, which
basically all modern code follows pretty well. I think this is mostly
the result of a strict JSR regime.

What I find really frustrating in Python (combined with usually bad
documentation) is that many people have different styles. The most
frustratinng being getFoo() vs .foo, vs get_foo().
