Yes this page is very good. One thing you might want to note also is 
that there is a nice C++ binding for Python in boost <www.boost.org>. 
Please don't infer from this that I am a big Python fan, most of my 
scripting to date has been with Perl, however I do see Python as being a 
language that could be more generally useful as a default.

Certainly this would be nice to know.
