I dislike the "bleeding edge" aspect of Python culture too, but (as
long as everyone ignores Python 3.0) it's not really something which
hurts me in my daily life. *Not* using Python would hurt, though.

I'm on Linux though, and use no third-party modules which haven't
already been filtered by Debian's maintainers. I don't know if that's
the reason, but my applications rarely or never break.  So I'm not
quite sure what happened in your case ...
