No not at all. I dont want python but I would like to borrow some of its
more concise syntax to make delphi less verbose thats all. Python is way
too flawed with its grossly inefficient dynamic typing to ever be good
for building general purpose applications.
I'll see if I can create a modern dialect and integrate it into FPC...
Any documents/info on how the compiler is laid out would be most
