Because it's a bad idea to do so and Python doesn't encourage such sloppy
behaviour. If you like it, though, you might prefer PHP.
By the way: error reporting is definitely *not* hand-holding. It is
simply not good to let errors pass silently by default. Again, if you
think the contrary, PHP is your friend ;-)
