People come and go, that's true.  That's to be expected though.  I certainly
find many of the "newer" folks more than capable replacements for people you
don't see around here (much) anymore.  Maybe you just aren't as familiar
with some of the new names.  I think if you intersect the set of frequent
posters here and with the frequent posters in python-dev (say, those who
post more than a few times a month) you'll find a fairly large intersection,
and that intersection will include some of the most active Python core
developers.
