The good news for me, at least, is that *I* am the manager. (Yep, the
company is small enough for that.) Actually, it should be stated that
Haskell has still been a huge overall win for us, despite this. I by no
means am contemplating a switch away from it because of this.
It must be said, too, that our core library, while perhaps less stable
than Python's, seems to me to be of a much higher quality. Or perhaps
I'm jaded after 8 years (!) of working with imaplib.py...
