In retrospect, in many ways this is why I am relatively patient with the
Python3 development direction. While I think its non-compatibility may
hurt in the short term, the long term goal of stream-lining the language
will make for a much better Python future. Essentially, the python team
said, "Look, python2 sucks... ," and then they went about figuring out
what Python would look like had it been "designed" right in the first
place. Whalla, Python3. So after years and years of practical experience
with the language Python is getting the face lift it deserves, and is
going to be one gorgeous lady when finished.
Personally, I really hope Python3 (or 3+) would have some of the
features that Cobra has built into the language.
* dynamic/late binding (like Python) for flexibility _and_
static/early binding for fast execution and error checking.
* inbuilt support for quality
- compile time "None Error" tracking # I have experienced this a
lot and it's a real pain :(
- inbuilt unit testing
- inbuilt "contracts" to ensure conditions are met when calling
functions.
* no "self"
* no ":" after if/else statements.

My main gripe with Cobra is that it requires the .NET framework (or
Mono), though the web pages do suggest they are also working on a
version that runs on JVM. Also third party libraries (e.g GUIs like wx)
may not be as good or available (yet) ??
