Python modules are 4 times more useful than Perl modules

[ #33331 ]
I just bumped into this blog entry showing that the number of packages of the 4 P languages:
  1. Perl (11643) http://cpan.org/
  2. Python (2392) http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi
  3. Ruby (1587) http://raa.ruby-lang.org/
  4. PHP (442) http://pear.php.net/packages.php

and the conclusion:

python modules are over 4x more useful than perl ones

and probably also that

python have more problems solved than Ruby and PHP together...

I know, I was never good at statistics...
