OK, I'm not a big expert in Python. That was just the thing, that was
important to me recently. I won't claim, that it's regularly a problem
with Python, although from reading Guido's blog I get that impression.
(Well, I understand, that's how BDFLs should behave :)
Yet there was no response to my point, that the original example was
not realistically depicting the Lisp world, while more characteristic
of the Python one.
