There is a thread over on c.l.py on this subject.
It's generating orders of magnitude more heat than light. Jeremy Dillworth's post, though, is well worth a read. Certainly nothing here is going to convince me to switch over, but there are ideas here that Python could steal.

Ruby's operator overloading syntax also looks very nice.Posted to Python by Simon Brunning at August 20, 2003 01:53 PM
