At this point, there's absolutely nothing that Python can do that Perl
can't, and very likely vice versa.

However, from personal experience, I know that Larry Wall understands
Object Oriented Programming, and Guido definitely doesn't get it.
Obviously, other people have worked on both languages, but keep that in
mind.  I can present my evidence of how Guido doesn't get it in a longer
post, if prompted.
