What do you find restrictive about the way that Python does things?

I've found Python to sometimes be more verbose than I like (in
particular I miss the assignment expression and occasionally the
ternary conditional expression), but I've rarely found it hard to do
things.  In particular, as someone who also programs daily in Lisp I
have never missed proper lambdas.

I've always considered that a feature, not a bug; that's what derived
classes are for.

What's the use-case for changing a class on the fly?
