Can the mind really grasp > such a thing? Sure, why not? Complexity is mostly subjective anyway, and every new feature potentially creates interactions with existing features, so I'm not at any risk of being proven wrong (or right). Paul Prescod would probably tell us that Python is 100 times simpler than C; personally, I'd suggest that any programming language with garbage collection is automatically 10 times simpler than one without, especially for newbies. Isn't ADA 100 times more complex than Standard C++, or were the people who told me that just disgruntled?
