Do You *Like* Handcuffs?

Ramon Leon writes...

With or without Seaside, Smalltalk needs to return to the mainstream. The current crop of mainstream languages, pretty much feel like handcuffs in comparison.

Handcuffs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Python doesn't feel cuffed to me; syntax and concepts in Smalltalk and Lisp do feel constraining even though conceptually I know they are not. At least the dynamic language community can agree that all serious dynamic languages let one deliver real work faster than their chained bretheren.

I would put Python in the Lisp and Smalltalk camp. Although some significant voices in the community are troubling me. See past discussions on Python which I would just as soon forget.
