I didn't get the impression that Austin was being snide. Instead, I
get the impression that they are someone from a different programming
background (C++/STL) who has not had sufficient exposure to the Python
way of doing things. I believe Austin is genuinely curious as to why
Python may not implement features found in another programming
Coming from a C/C++ background myself, it took me a while to un-learn
certain idioms. I still find myself "thinking in C" on occasion, only
to find a more elegant way to accomplish the task.
