My apologies.  You are right, I meant optional, static typing.  Thanks
for the catch Jeff.

Python's dynamic typing is just fine.  But if I know the type, I want
the ability to nail it.  ...local variables, arguments, return values,
etc  And if I don't know or care, I'd leave it to dynamic typing.

The need for a lot of doc goes away, those new to the language that
think it's a big deal can be explicit, and as I suggested earlier, I
think the byte code interpreter could be made a lot smarter and
faster.  ...and corporate acceptance would follow.
