Hey! The writter of that article is clearly pro-Python! There is a lot
of personal oppinion in that article. What kind of approach you were
thinking at to talk to the authors of the project?

"The debates surrounding these decisions sum up the major problem that
the new TurboCASH faces: its 20- year legacy is both its greatest
asset and its main liability. For example, it's unlikely that a brand
new project would have a debate over FreePascal/Lazarus or Python.
Python is the language of the moment, particularly in GNOME circles.
Pascal is, arguably, the great also-ran of programming languages.
However, TurboCASH has to weigh the benefits of any new language
against the potential for alienating its existing development team."
