A program is a product of a person's creativity as is a programming
language.
They have an analogous relation as say a sculpture to chisels.
This thread is a good example of how longwindedness of a discussion
correlates with its uselessness.
However the reverse error is more insidious: programs are made by
humans and should be critiqued, whereas programming languages (in
particular python) is sacrosanct and cannot be questioned.

Too often I find that responders on this list treat as personal
affront anyone who questions python whereas the most appropriate
response would be: Nice idea but too invasive for serious
consideration.

[I am saying this in general and not for this thread:Whats wrong with
a < b < c is quite beyond me!]
