I'm in the latter camp, absolutely, except that I have a lot of
practical needs for much of that dynamism.
Admittedly, the topic of this thread is a bit funky. I'm wondering what
the application is: a profiler? a debugger? malware? self-awareness?

I've been talking about the need for effective JIT so we can get rid of
Java et co. I wouldn't dream of taking away any of Python's dynamism,
though. In particular, type annotations etc are a big no in my book.
