comment Is the algorithm more important than the programming language?
@Phil: And 200 lines of Python can potentially be a lot more maintainable than 50 lines of type-safe code. I've never seen that much clarity advantage in type-safe languages, assuming well-written code.

comment Can I borrow parts of an apache-licensed project for something not open-source?
Are you asking if you can change something and sell copies? You can do that for any open source (as defined by the OSI) license, although it works better as a revenue stream with the least restrictive licenses.
