I dunno, my experiences in that group have been less than
welcoming, but i won't beat a dead horse...

I'm not so much interested in talking with Guido personally, i
would just like to see him participate in more areas of this
community instead of keeping himself all couped-up in those
"members only" forums. I see no need for the Python
community to be purposefully stratified into social classes.
But i cannot help but feel that some folks in this community
have declared themselves members of an aristocracy.
