Uhh... if your managers and customers are stipulating non-Pythonic
coding styles, then it's time to find new managers/customers. If
they're not writing the code, code quality shouldn't be their concern.

Of course, if you want to switch to Swift, sure, but I'm going to keep
working on Python. Just please don't FUD this list.
