Yes. Many people I know state the functional part as a big reason why
they chose python.
Basically, before Python 3000 a number of scenarios are thinkable :
- The python community will just bite their lip and take it. 
- There'll be some skirmishes and the proposal will get shot down
after a small revolution. (not likely)
- python will get a second -- more functional -- branch coexisting
with the standard.

I personally can see this last scenario happen, for some reason. 
I know it's not even being developed yet, but does anyone know what
date python 3000 is aiming at?
