Please don't hurt the @. While function composition (f @ g) maybe isn't that popular, but it's consistent with the current use of @ in the language. Operator meaning shouldn't depend on context that much unless Python 3 wants to become the true Perl 6.

From Python Insider:

"Christian Heimes announces the release of his defusedxml package to address XML-related security issues which were reported to security@python.org over the last several months.

Looks like someone pressed the button a bit too early and RSS is not very forgiving ;) Anyway, this is a much needed addition to the Python eco-system.

People complain that WebKit will doom us all, because there are 5yo simple bugs no one fixes and JS frameworks have to work around them. 

This just in: EVERY widely used opensource project I've seen has those kind of bugs. Here is a PITA of the day for me: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=195361 (:s/Composer/User/).

The people who need to hear this aren't listening: Every time you say, 'rockstar/ninja' to a developer, the developer dies a little inside.
