The thing that struck me about the interaction (on Python-Ideas, btw)
impressive pace, and many of them seem very Pythonic.? But they
sometimes choose different syntax.
For example, their "spread" operator is ..., where Python uses *:
??? new_list = [new_start, *old_list, new_end]
??? new_array = [new_start, ...old_array, new_end]
spread operator without breaking anyone. But they didn't, and I wonder
if anyone petitioned them to keep compatibility with Python to easy the
plight of the multi-lingual programmer.
