Is it in the plan to remove the scheme scripting in Gimp and go to all Python 
scripting?  Is there much of a difference between what can be done with 
either?  I have tried a couple of times to learn Python, but I am an old fogy 
and keep coming up against a wall whenever I try to get my head around the 
whole object oriented programming thing (yes, I know, Python can do procedural 
just fine...but it seems like OOP is a sort of central concept to a lot of what 
python is capable of..)

Anybody got any good recommendations for books for learning Python?  Especially 
ones that actually give a clear explanation of the the whole OOP thing in a 
Python context?  I've found stuff that kind of explains things for other 
languages, but that doesn't help with understanding things from a Python 
specific point of view.  I've gotten a Python for Dummies seems 
I am too dumb even for that.

I'd really like to get a handle on this, since Python scripts both Inkscape and 
Blender as well.

I've been tinkering with computers for over 20 years, but my programming 
experience, what there is of it, is pretty much in procedural.  Some Pascal 
(back in the 80's), various flavors of BASIC, mostly on old Atari 8-bit 
machines, some on Commodor64, Action --think of a cross between C and Pascal, 
it ran on the Atari--, and lately, Tcl/Tk (Not explicitly OOP, but it is 
supposedly capable of it), on Win and Linux.
