To me this situation completely disqualifies python as a reasonable
choice for any production use. Unfortunately we're too dependent on it
now, and that's the only reason they got away with it. The man-years
of effort they put upon the world could have been used much more
productively. The only thing I really fear is when they do the same
thing in 2021 with python3->4. Everybody will follow, and they will
feel even more powerful.
