You still don't get it, Andreas: "foo" and "bar" are *examples* - they 
do not equate specifically to "whatever Python" and "whatever Perl".

You misunderstood my original use of those terms.  Here, holger 
explicitly hint at it being arbitrary by replacing with "foo" and "bar".

Stop staring at the misunderstanding.  Move on please.
