That is because python is a teaching/demonstration language and not really 
built for serious work!  :-). Pascal was the same way.  So they keep changing 
it and breaking things to make it “better”.   C has been reasonably stable for 
a number of years with only a few internal inconsistencies.  Personally I like 
the fact that Swift was designed specifically to avoid the pitfalls in C and as 
a production language.

Less work to skip 0.9 than trying to convince people there was nothing between 
0.8.23 and 8.24?  That will confuse a lot!
