Ah that makes a lot of sense, thanks for explaining, it gives me greater
'ordinal' perspective if you know what I mean. Sequential perspective?

Would contacting python, and open-source python project mailing lists be a good
approach for this?

Hhaha! Indeed!

Hmm this one is rare, so I've got my fingers crossed that since our project is
naturally structured for this, that we will end up attracting people with the
above skills that are also autodidacts.

Can you give me some ideas of where to start my search for these people? Either
more generally, or specific to a subset of the above skills? Like my python
mailing list ideas above? Or in contrast to those ideas?
