I thank the Python community for not caving in on maintaining their extremely high standards. This is exactly why Python will remain a relevant language far into the future. Other high-level languages that try to maintain backwards compatibility suffer from so much function and operator bloat (php, perl...) that they begin to get complicated and confusing, so people stop using them and move on to the next hot language. Trimming the fat means that won't happen with Python. Now just cross your fingers for Perl 6....
