Re: See cure, Itty-bitty

Python's design is pretty good and generally encourages safe programming. For example, global, eval and exec exist because they are very occasionally required but basically the advice is YAGI (you ain't going to need it). Lots of code handling sensitive data, including credit card details, is written in Python and running safely, AFAIK.
