Hi there guys. Recently I posted a question on Reddit. The question was that if you could change something in Python what would it be? I got some really interesting answers from other programmers. Here are some of the top answers till now.
Make building a stand alone executable part of the spec. The two main projects that do it are hacks
the namespaces in the datetime module. its really annoying to have to remember if I used
from datetime import datetime
optional static typing. as in i would add the ability to statically type things in python, but not make it mandatory.
“slef” should be a universal alias for self

Compile to native codeCombine 2 and 3 into one version moving forward
