Yeah. We appear to agree. I'm just tired of those people who think that these problems can only be solved (or atleast improved upon) by having a statically typed language.
Python is, IMHO proof that it's possible to solve many of these problems and have a cleaner, safer language while remaining dynamically typed.
Sure. But it still does not make it usable for an industrial projects. Which are defined not by size but by staff turnover: it's not uncommon to see project handled by 4 or 5 generations of programmers in the course of 10 years in a commercial environment - and each generation start with the code but without help from the previous generation. Dynamically typed languages almost wholly unsuitable for such a development, statically typed languages fare much better.
