Raymond Hettinger frequently posts here, both with interesting code 
snippets and recipes, and to answer questions. Particularly if they 
relate to itertools or other code he has contributed. Also Mark Dickson, 
and probably a few others.

Personally, I'm glad that most of Python Dev don't hang around here. We 
are far better off if Python Dev, you know, actually Devs Python, rather 
than answering (mostly) easy questions and getting stuck in tar-pits.
