Source code is great. In source code for Python you can get many
instersting things: Demo programs, first-hand Python Grammar.

Source code is great educational resource, too.

Sometimes, it is sufficient to look at C source for Python builtin
functionas to understand what is inside.

No deep knowledge of C is need, honest. Just common sense and
file-contents search utilities or grep to find needed functions.

Source code give experts total control of the situation. That is why Open
Source/Freeware movement is so strong. If something is wrong, they can
look into source and mend it or understand that my assumptions were wrong.
