why so polemic?
3 simple facts:
- i already have to install perl.
- i have no single reason to install python.
- 97% of all the other developers are the same.
i don't know about phyton. it might very well be a
_great_ language. and it might be small. nevertheless:
if every fancy idea get's implemented in yet another
great language without need we have a problem.
and as far as i can see there is not a single reason
for forcing 300 developers (310 current developers
minus estimated 10 which already have phyton installed
and use it.). well, apart from the personal preferences of
a single one... :-(
