Hmm, I'm not so sure about that... We have a lot of cool application 
programmers at my office, working with Delphi, but they don't know jack 
about OOP. I think this is because Delphi lets you get away with only 
*using* the already existing objects and components. It doesn't 
particularly encourage you to create or derive new classes, and in this 
respect I don't see the benefits of Delphi over Python.

On the other hand, Delphi is of course an excellent example about what you 
can do with OOP... Maybe someday such a system will also be available for 
Python. Preferably affordable. ;-)
