Perhaps, but that just shows you aren't a programming language geek
like me. Writing languages is *fun*. OK, so I'm wierd. My very brief
exposure to Python leaves me not too pleased with it - too OO! I'll
use OO when I judge it appropriate, not all the time (same problem
with Java, unfortunately). So shoot me! :-)
