Python's coming... from unexpected angles.

Just found this:

I do believe that Python should be somewhat more upfront to brandish it's
merits - but then, sneaky ways are ok with me to...

Well, it seems like she's an early adopter: she's eager to use PyPy
all the time (though she has aliased it to 'pipi').

Well, I'd definetely vote for a name change for PyPy, as in french, it's
pronounced "pee-pee", and yes, it means what you think it means... ;-)

Does that mean you pronounce the word for the serpent as "pee-thon"?

Anyway, the pronunciation of "Python" (and hence the "Py" in "PyPy")
is however you pronounce that word in the name of the comedy troupe,
Monty Python. That's where the name originates, after all.

Don't forget you're replying to a french native speaker here. They do not
pronounce "Monty Python" the way you'd think they do, so the above isn't
actually of any help at all.

But the average frenchman will also pronounce "monty pee-thon" (I know:
that's weird...).

No more weird than pronunciations of words in English. At least in
this case you're presenting a consistent pronunciation :-)
