That's a shame... so what to do?
Python I know is able to quickly bootstrap interesting project developments
in two ways and corss-breeding them:
First design+code in python, then optimize selectively crucial sections in C
to get to reach acceptable perfromance. Often these optimizations are small
but very well aimed.
Find an existing library, usually open-source, and write Python API for it,
in the process learning hands-on about it the design. Later perhaps develop
Python native version. For example, building a cool integrated editor using
How does REBOL work in regard to using such libraries?
