Actually, I've only ever claimed Python had one virtue: it doesn't suck.
Java comes in second place for unsucky-ness but the current debate about
how to work around its type system makes me think twice.

I think that it is actually pretty pathetic that programming languages
haven't moved far beyond Python by now but all I can do is use the least
annoying of them.
