The Python guys are rallying behind `.NET'?  Where did you get this

AFAICT, *some* Python guys (all of those working on Windows platforms)
*like* `.NET'.  *All* of Python?  Not by a long shot...

Python is pretty multi-platform already, not much urgent need for
`.NET' here.

Bye, J

PS: It follows that "Everybody and their brother" is of course
patently false... for one, *I'm* not rallying behind it... I won't
even use it unless there's a free implementation for Linux.  And my
brother isn't even in the computer business... :-)
