That's only natural. People who don't like it are less likely to use Python 
and hang around the Python NGs. Just like how there's very few people around 
here that have any problem with curly braces, since people who have a strong 
prefernce for, say, BASIC/Pascal-style "begin/end" blocks are unlikely to 
care enough about D to hang around here.
