Contest snub?

Notice anything strange here? The Python entry seems to have edged the PHP
entries, but is not declared the victor. Source is missing as well (the archive
is empty.)

Clearly Python is superior because it doesn't need any code at all to do

Surely you can see that? :)

I question the timings though, 2+ minutes to execute nothing doesn't
seem very pythonesque.

Furthermore, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean people aren't
out
