It's my wording attempting to sum up a general feeling
shared by the ACCU conference-organizing list.  I think
I worded it a bit better in the announcement. The good news 
is that all these people regard Python as a full equal to Java 
and C++ with its own niche, found our crowd very interesting,
and even tried very hard to get Guido back as lead speaker.
(Sadly he did not dare commit to 4 events this year.)
