And a blindingly obvious association is another form of

Really? I thought every situation was exactly the same. How
foolish am i? Oh please enlighten us with more of your wisdom!

Chris i hate to burst you're little naive "vajayjay bubble",
but a vast majority of the Python community is currently
using, and will for many years continue using, Python<3.0.
Just because they don't participate here => in your private
self-aggrandizing blog <= does not mean they don't exist!

See, unlike you, we didn't start writing Python code a few
years ago. No, we skipped the "pike detour" through the
intellectual ghetto, and we've been writing Python code for
many years. And we have millions of lines of code in our

And we're not about to risk "exception hell" just so we can
get a few "meager" new features and a "kewel" new print
function. Besides, most of the new features have long ago been
patched by creative programmers or are available via the: 

  from __future__ import KEWEL_NEW_FEATURE

I have a statement about what you can do with your print
function, but executing that statement might result in this
fine group throwing an IntegrityError. Therefor, i'll leave 
the "interpretation" of my statement as an academic exercise 
for all the Usenet eyeball-parsers.
