Despite the bug I ran into (yes that really is a 4 year+ bug with a fix still waiting to be committed ouch!) I still like Python, I'm reasonably productive, I can actually go back to code I've already written and understand it (unlike Perl), it seems to be reasonably flexible in the right places. Using beatbox I was able to put together a Python based CGI that takes in a SOQL query and spits out an Atom representation of it, I can now see my todo list in NetNewsWire. If anyone's interested I clean it up and open source it, let me know.
