Utter elitist nonsense.
Programming should be made easier, and I see Python as a very good
language for making programming easier. Lowering the barrier for
prospective hackers to get into programming is a good thing. The
installation of a C compiler is incidental to that, and has no
necessary connection with programming.
Placing meaningless roadblocks, as you suggest should be done, is
anathema to education.
