Python and Harry Potter?

Hi,
just to let you know ...

Today I've got an email from Amazon recommending me
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

and they told me why they recommended this book,
because I've bought
Core PYTHON Programming

Didn't know, Harry Potter is a Python fan.

I would've expected something with more magic, like Perl. :-)

Python fan??? Harry speaks Python fluently. We should all be so
lucky!

I'm told Harry is looking forward to Py3K and getting rid of all the
old (hog)warts ....

If you scan the alt.fan.harry-potter archives carefully, you will find at least
one well-known Python core developer. :-)

Well, how about another Python renaming flame thread then? Let's
call Python 3.0 "Parselmouth" instead ...
