Lets imagine you have not created Python, but some other programming language. Relying on your judgment, what existing (but not necessarily popular) programming language would be the closest to your mindset / principles / preferences? Or maybe there is none - in such case, how would it differ from Python?
That question baffles me, as you are guru of significant part of developers and surely there is some language that either follows good parts of Python, or avoids Python mistakes. Could you share your thoughts on what would be your choice for Python replacement, if creation of Python would not be possible?
Ps. Many people seem to treat Ruby as being very close to Python. If you will pick Ruby, could you pick also another language, that you would pick after Python and Ruby?
