Yeah, it's something I've mentioned a few times. I think people have
mentioned C on this list a few times, too; also lisp. Of course, since
this is the Python mailing list (or newsgroup, depending where you
read it), we aren't allowed to mention any other languages at all. Mea
culpa.

I'm not seeking to add Pike's functionality into Python. I want the
two languages to be different, and I want the world to have different
languages. Diversity and choice promote quality in ways that you don't
seem to understand.
