No, I don't 'dis-' GNUe; you should keep working on it, more power to ya.
And its not that I dislike python ...
The problem is more of a (real-or-perceived) barrier of integrating
gnome/C programs with python, especially if those programs are already
integrated with another language (e.g. scheme, or java ... or C# etc.)
For this kind of integration, I worry about dependency hell,
module API's that change, bloat (pulling in megabytes of code
so as to get access to kbytes of desired function), cross-language
debugging, etc. Its just scary.
This is a real issue not just for python, but any other language
that Havoc daydreams about for the future of Gnome ...
