Alf, here's my suggestion on how to respond to people's criticisms of 
your technical prowess: come up with the "best ever" description of 
Python's variable-assignment and argument-passing schemes, and place the 
description in your manuscript [1]. Section 2.4, "Naming things", 
currently does not address the issues discussed in this thread ("pass by 
XXX", etc.).

HTH,
John
