More than one way to look at it

[ #38746 ]

Perl's motto is There's more than one way to do it, whereas Python's approach is that consistency is a virtue.

Except that not everything is like that. There's only one Comprehensive Perl Archive Network, only one DBI, and one implementation of Perl 5. Whereas Python now has so many implementations that they can meaningfully have a summit.

Strange.

I'm not quite sure how many implementations of Python there are. Is there a canonical list somewhere? There were 7 + CPython on the Wikipedia page, but they list neither the current implementation targeting Parrot, nor its predecessor.
