I have quite a lot of (mostly enjoyable) experience writing Perl over
the years, including some fairly big programs, and hardly any
experience with Python (a language I dislike on instinct).  But my
experience with Perl has been that returning to my own projects is
harder than it should be, and harder than in languages like C and C++.
 That is probably due to my own limitations, particularly when it
comes to discipline, but it's empirically true in my case.

The real assumption I made back there was that Python code is any
easier to return to -- I haven't the experience to judge, really, I'm
just going on hearsay from friends and acquaintances.
