I didn't see any Python issues in there. The worst one is that you can't 
safely kill people from Python without leaving the server unstable, which 
creates a host of problems with admin scripts that need to move people 
between teams. There's also no way to arrange squads from Python.

You can't change the password on the fly, which is a much cleaner way of 
implementing reserved slots, and also means you don't have to restart the 
server when you want to switch from a busy member-priority period back to 
open play, without losing most of your population for the night.

That's ok. It's the holidays, so lots of alternatives will spring up. 
Hopefully not so many lemmings will go for EA's and VUG's offerings and try 
out the Indies.
