They told me so

I'm sure that rillian and a few others are probably chuckling, saying "I told you so" under their breaths, but here it is: I like Python 2.3. I really like it. If I had known that it was (in some senses) a stealth Lisp with infix notation and fewer parentheses, I might have given it more of a chance sooner. Instead, I bashed it mercilessly for having an exception dedicated to indentation errors.

In short, I now feel very foolish for judging a language by its exceptions.
