I don't. Consider it an act of charity.

I really don't care which language ROOT is written in: the only point along those lines that I've made is that C++ is not a natural or simple candidate for an interactive user interface. And I certainly know the difference between C++ and Python: one was designed for rapid, clean, interactive use and the other one wasn't :-)

So sorry, which bit of what I said was the "sterile polemic"?
