Cited from http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ex50.html :
"Other Python programmers will warn you that lpthw.web is just a fork of another web framework called web.py, and that web.py has too much "magic". If they say this, point out to them that Google App Engine originally used web.py and not a single Python programmer complained that it had too much magic, because they all worked at Google. If it's good enough for Google, then it's good enough for you to get started. Then, just get back to learning to code and ignore their goal of indoctrination over education."
Hmmm... I remember times when Guido v.Rossum, Tim Peters and others were working at a company called BeOpen.com
