Interestingly, I recall reading an interview with Guido in, I believe, 
Linux Journal.  In response to a "What would you do differently?" sort of 
question, he responded that he thought he listened to the functional 
language advocates too much, and some of the features they 
requested--that were added to Python--maybe weren't in the best interests 
of the language.  Or somesuch.  This is from memory :)
