I never said that a pre-processor is a good permanent solution, but
the simple fact that my proposal can be done with a simple pre-
processor means that it does not change the inner workings of the
Python interpreter.

I can stand people disagreeing with me all day long, so long as they
are making sense. You are simply making the issue more complicated
that it is because you are apparently incapable of understanding the
substance of it.

There you go again. Do you think you are proving something by
addressing me as "boy"? I'll make a little wager with you. I'll bet
that what I am using Python for dwarfs in importance what you are
using it for. Care to put the cards on the table, big man?

I'll tell you something else while I'm at it. I'm ten years older than
you, but I pump iron and stay in excellent shape. If you addressed me
as "boy" in person, I'd be more than happy to teach you a badly needed
lesson you won't soon forget, big man.
