oh, this seems to be just on par with my Python experience in general, 
maybe the nature of the beast.
Many different paths possible, documentation sort of random. Confusing!

The good of it is that it indeed seems to be an environment where 
anything is possible.

As to bugginess, I do not think it is inherent to Python, likely just an 
effect of a lot being tried all over the place, though it makes the 
atmosphere somewhat less welcoming - I gave up very quickly, found 
Assembler still easier :-)

Getting started in Python seems a very steep step, and that probably 
explains to some extent why so very, very few developers are yet coming 
from the XO users world.
Hopefully, by learning it, people like Caryl, so good at "translating 
English to English" will be able to make a difference there also.
