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
