To expand on this a little bit,  I've been subscribed to this group
for a couple of months, but there seems to be a bit more gray area
between what would go to a 'python-dev'  group and a 'python-user'
group.   Long debates about language features and abstract ideas would
appeal to the former, but not the latter.  Certainly I fall into the
user category..  I'm pretty happy with python, and generally just
adjust to it's design and features, rather than spend lots of time on
whether they are 'right' or could be 'better'.  /shrug
