What you are saying is not wrong, except for the generalizations 
to "everybody".

Obviously you are not aware of the other people/industries who 
use python for non-performane critical applications (not 
prototype, but real large applications), there are several 
reasons, but don't want to bore you with details (one of which is 
the "super structure").

I do wish we were using D everywhere, and I do use it for 
personal and small tools at the job.
