There is one case that Python handles more nicely than C. And that is iterating over a fixed set of values. E.g. in Python

    for rendering in (False, True) :
    #end for

versus the (slightly) more long-winded C:

    for (bool rendering = false;;)
        if (rendering)
        rendering = true;
      } /*for*/
