Yes, we have to be careful not to go into 'style over substance' again.  
The sad fact of Python in Blender was not a lack of engineering skills,  
but just lack of a motivated group of artists/coders who are interested  
in making something that works for the users.

I don't care how you do it, with mailboxes or with a bomb-proof  
interface or with a wee timerous beasty... (Nice definition of Blender,  
though! :-)
