The Python community is still very small; I was surprised at the last Europython to discover that most of the people present did not earn a wage from Python. Anything that helps more pythonistas earn a living from their passion is good IMO.
While I can understand strong opposition on the main Python list (which is about the language itself), python-uk is a low-volume list for discussions about the Python *community* in this country... and jobs are a part of that.
Obviously, once tens of thousands of UK devs earn their living from Python, then I will join the "NO" camp :-)
