Hmm, it's my opinion that anyone able to learn Perl would find Python
trivial, but I guess that's just an opinion.  My experience, though,
is that I was pretty normal in being able to write maintainable Python
code the first day I started learning it -- I've heard the same from
lots of other people.

The real challenge here is probably not moving from Perl to Python,
but rather moving from Tk to GTK.
