It wasn't til I saw the word "Prothon" that I scrolled back and saw you
were responding to a thread from 2004.  Prothon was pretty cool in some
ways but I think it's been inactive for a very long time.  I don't see
much point to developing a "slightly improved but incompatible
Python-like language" anyway though.  Why make superficial changes that
break working code and mentally overload programmers?  Python is a
relatively mature language by now, so it shouldn't be messed with unless
the changes produce drastic benefits, not minor ones.
