Ehhh... Not agreed. Not quite. Yes it's true in that Python is
Turing-complete, but there are a lot of jobs that it can't handle
_well_. (Unless someone's seriously considering porting the Linux
kernel to Python... or writing a device driver in Python... or writing
a MS Word virus in Python...) Right tool for the job! But certainly
Python is excellent at many tasks, and it's easy to work with. I
wholeheartedly support the sentiment behind your statement, even if I
quibble slightly - your statement has accuracy, it merely wants
precision :)

I'll watch your vid once I'm home from work - it promises to be some
pretty cool stuff!
