Indeed, however Oxford dropped teaching Python the next year, as they
found the students did not find Python any easier to learn than C
(they split the class in half and taught ~80 students C and ~80
students Python). I believe this was because the notes were pretty
much a straight translation from C -> Python and am not convinced by
the conclusion reached.
