Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Prothon is close enough to Python (notice the spelling here) to consider it an alternative implementation in my mind. Except for the 64-bit/threading issues which are a minor issue to most (wasn't this supposed to be a _simpler_ language??), the "big changes" of tabs/spaces, removal of self, and removal of classes/metaclasses is just noise. Why introduce another implementation that solves no apparent issues except syntax?
