Your arguments in my view boil down to "Haskell is a nice language" and "Static typing is useful". It still doesn't change my argument that Python is genetically neither of these. And we will cripple it greatly if we try to push it in that direction.

[Your problem with bs4 is just a facet of a billion dollar mistake (treating null as an object), that's present in many statically typed languages even today. Optional is great for explaining to humans, but very hard to get right when talking to computers.]
