A fable:-

Once upon a time a developer whose first love was Python
found himself deep in the dark, thick jungle known
as C++.

The big bad customer had bellowed "You must use C++ to
get out of this jungle or you will not get paid!".

It was clear to the developer that Python was the
right tool for the job. What to do? A cunning
plan was hatched over the campfire. The developer
used Python in all is iridescent, commodius, munificence
to work on the the problem and with a few deft strokes,
generated C++ ready for static compilation.

The jungle was tamed. The customer paid up. The
developer moved on to the next jungle with a 
faint hint of swagger, hiding a surrepticous
grin in his docstrings...
