He is not "whining". He is explaining his criteria for choosing a =
and pointing out that jython does not seem to meet them, harshly perhaps =
politely. In return, he gets something very close to an ad hominem attack =
whiner!). A depressingly familiar scenario in the open-source world, I =
While it is true that nobody forces anyone to use [insert favorite OS tool =
that cuts both ways: nobody forces the developers to do what they do =
If they decide to, they should be willing to hear criticism and not be so =
defensive. For one thing, that does not help the project.

Maybe that's why so much software is so kludgy and unreliable?=20
I find the pervasiveness of this culture of "Yeah it has its share of
problems but, hey, it's good enough and to hell with whiners and=20
perfectionists" very troubling.

That's humanity for you. What're you going to do? Until computers begin to systematically adapt themselves to new problem domains
that's what you get -- even in highly regimented standards environments such as we have in spacecraft and industrial control. You
wouldn't believe how much *snot* is holding together this industry.
I don't find Jython, in particular, kludgy, btw -- maybe a little poorly documented, but it's pretty consistent, imo.
