Gosh you don't half spout some rubbish.  Your total number of victories over me is zero, although I personally come here to give or get knowledge, not look for such things.

As for the cobblers about Cerburus and "challenging the benevolent Hades" would you be kind enough to:-

a) list just how many Python bugs you have worked on

b) state how much work you intend doing on the planned core workflow improvements

For the latter you can find the relevant PEPs easily enough for yourself, or just like Cecil do you expect someone to do that for you as well?
