> That is asinine bullshit and you should be ashamed. ... The development of Python never stalled, it barely even slowed.

Thanks for the language, but the only thing I'm ashamed of is Python's lost opportunities. How many thousands or perhaps millions of hours of developer time was spent on compatibility or maintaining two versions? What if that energy was directed on the improving the language instead. There's no question that it would be further along than it is now.
