Actually, the fact that it has anonymous lambdas, and now a
substantial contingent of map functions, is thrilling. (Isn't that
sick?-) Imagine, python functions are real first class objects, in a
*scripting* language! Too cool. All that, plus *lexical scoping*,
and a simple object system!

Ah, very cool. I'm big on outline structuring and detail suppression
for code - wrote allout.el, designed to mix outline structuring in any
context, particularly that of program code. I use it all the time,
but may not need it as much for use with python code.
