No, I agree, it's stupid. To me it feels like a kind of conceptual backwash from JS. The whole P3 fiasco looks really silly from far enough away.

It's like, you have a great marriage with everything working out and some fine children who are doing great too, but you get a divorce anyway to pursue your dreams of being a conceptual artist.

(BTW, in case anyone is keeping track, I was going to maintain P2 but got caught up in Prolog, of all things, and now Python looks just as crude as everything else and I don't have the requisite love anymore to shoulder the work. I might make a Python 2 interpreter in Prolog though! That would be fun.)
