I'm sorry, I've been away for four days and have lost track of this thread. 
Have you reached an agreement about the number of angels which dance on the 
head of a pin yet, or will this argument continue for another week?

This sterile, pointless arguing about the minutia of pedantic definitions is 
not even close to useful. Honestly Thomas, Ian, nobody cares any more. If I 
were a betting man, I'd bet that neither of you can describe, in one 
sentence, what is the actual disagreement between the two of you, let alone 
why it matters for Python programming.
