I have found Python to break down as I scale it into a larger system spanning multiple directories and modules.

It's fine for bashing out 3-4 file programs. It's a decently high-entropy language.

It's a bloody lousy hacking language because of the prescriptiveness.

I'd rather use Common Lisp, and I do, for personal stuff.
