QOTW: "Well, to do what I've done so far in Java would have taken at least

"Python is built on a small set of entirely uninteresting control structures,

logic of your code than about whether you can whip something off as a
one-liner or obfuscate it to show your brilliance in comparison to lesser
programmers. ;-)" -- Peter Hansen
