Yes I think that is the point, if the code you maintain and the code
which you have to debug differ because there is a translator in the
middle you're going to be in trouble before or later.

Moreover, unless you only work alone (which is very unlikely) I think
you should agree with everyone else in such a decision..
And if you really miss so much features that are not in Python at all,
why not just use another programming language which has them then?
