Perhaps you misunderstand the word, "intriguing?"  I was making a very
veiled jab at Java (and maybe PHP) here, folks.  Not that Google uses
Java much or would use it for GAPE, but that python is now going to be
pushed to the forefront of a lot of web application development.  I was
pretty sure my posting history would give me away.  I'm an anti-Java,
pro-python bigot, and now I've been totally justified!
