Bugs are caused by the programmer, regardless of the language.  The best 
way of know of avoiding bugs in Python is a combination of running 
Pylint in the Pydev editor as I type (I'd assume other IDEs let you do 
this as well) and testing, more testing and yet more testing.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
