I'm not familiar with mypy, but the self-referential problem can be solved with PEP 563's
from __future__ import annotations
, which won't be needed in Python 4.
I will check this out, since it'd shift the balance in the favour of sticking with Python (my head is running towards C++, perhaps foolishly).
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
