This is OT, but relevant to the side discussion. Also note that 
the community respects and appreciates the T.J. Reedy 
contributions and hard work.

Reality. It was a monumental task to convert ATE driver dev and 
related factory automation stuff from C to Python starting in 
2000. Most was done guerrilla-style. My employer now appreciates 
the resultant infrastructure that even the Mexico factory 
engineering team can use, and is good for their pride because 
they are no longer totally dependent on gringo engineers.

Am currently being disruptive to their little world with my 
recent (1Q 2011) switch to 3.x. The corporate natives are 
restless and there is talk of an armed insurrection. Humans, at 
the tribal level, do not adapt to change. Expect a long series 
of battles that are ruthless, bloody, and have a high body 
count. Vive la Revolution.
