Actually, I think you've done a good job of comparing (and contrasting)
them, and I appreciate it. I do have a couple of points of contention.

Python has some functional features, though they're not as well
integrated into the language as they could be.

I didn't say that a distributed as a standard part of Python. The fact
that Erlang has Mnesia is an obvious point in it's favor. With Python I
could use something like Gadfly or Interbase, but would have to take
care of the distribution myself.
