Aahz commented somewhere that he really disliked that Bruce confused
dynamically typed and weakly typed all through this article.
Python is a dynamically typed language because it does make a determination
of type at runtime.
There doesn't seem to be a consensus about what a strongly typed language
Most people seem to confuse strongly typed with compile-time type checking.
Bruce's point that unit testing saves us from a whole class of errors that
compile-time type checking can't save us from is still a good one.
