Akira, you said, "neither models are detailed enough to describe
meaningfully the behavior of Python code in the general case."   

I'm wondering what aspect of the code's behavior isn't captured
in this model?  I know you didn't expect it to be complete, but I'm
not sure what you think is missing.
