Dusting off some of my musings written years ago but at least tangentially
related to all this:

I am not particularly enamored of the feeping creaturism that that infested
Python 3, but then again, I'm not required by law to use said feeping creatures...

I wish GvR well.  He's served this community magnificently and deserves far
better than he got, especially lately. := pedantry aside (and I am NOT a fan),
great things come from individual minds, not committees and I think it is
simply inarguable that GvR built a Very Great Thing.  So ... thanks ... and
go enjoy your life, sir, you've more than earned it.
