Actually I think I'd prefer it if `py' weren't mentioned . It's never
been an `excellent tool', and I don't think anyone has used it
seriously.  I don't want to support it.  It's a weird hack and I'm not
really sure how it got into the FAQ to begin with.

I don't think 'were doing anyone a favor by talking about it.
