I've become quite a fan of the python-dev list.  Not the same as
dealing with OS kernel semantics, but those guys are really smart, and
(despite the semantic whitespace[1]) Python gets a lot of really neat
language innovations early.

[1]  tee hee, a grad student told me today that there exists a
language named "whitespace" whose lexer pukes unless your program
matches [ \t\n]*.  Gotta look this one up, and write an Emacs mode for
it, and a Quail input method that allows abbreviating whitespace syntactic
tokens with illegal keyboard characters.  :-)
