Yes probably have since you can write Ruby code that almost mimics
Python code, well except for that annoying "end" statement ;). But i
think Ruby attracts more perl-heads and lispers anyhow. And i really
doubt we want to caterer to that bunch *wink*.

I shudder when i imagine a world without Python's simplistic beauty,
it is a very scary thought...
