"A program written in Python can be a fraction of the number of lines as a program which does the same thing in C."

This is both a blessing and a curse. Unfortunately, the folks who see it as a blessing will probably never fully understand why it's also a curse. Folks who know it's a curse debug code with the compiler's assembly output anyway, and don't care.
