Well, in a way they *can*: I find it very inspiring to read the source code of Python (the .py files), though I don't do this as often as I should.

What I like about R: if I do 'print(func)' (or fix(func)), it prints the source code of the function. It would be cool if Python had something similar. Instead Python prints the not-so-informative <function func at 0xa82fae4>
