I don't follow what's going on in the Python community, but just as a  
counterpoint, there seems like a strong possibility that Perl 6 will  
split the community.  Quite bizarrely, the closer a complete, working  
implementation gets, the louder some people become about their opinion  
that it will never be a finished or viable platform.
