Duh! That was the point of his analogy, Ian. *ALL* Python
programmers need the patches. Whether or not they possess
the skill to create them is irrelevant.

But the baby is not the only victim if the diapers are not
changed. Imagine the foul odors that "rumors of bugginess"
will emit into the household, and if unchecked long enough,
out into the neighborhood.

A some point a social worker will be dispatched, and the
baby will be taken away to a home that provides the
necessary sanitary conditions. But not before the parents
will be thrown in prison, ridiculed, and forgotten. The end
result is a broken family Ian.

Is any of this sinking in?
