Umm, yeah. The language is stable, widely used packages are stable.
Guido actually has little involvement in the larger Python ecosystem.
It's not like NumPy, Django, Pandas, Flask, PyPI, Conda, or other
popular packages or subsystems built with/for Python are suddenly
going to crumble because Guido is no longer BDFL.

But, by all means, if rewriting your applications in a different
language floats your boat, go right ahead...
