It's an interesting statement. The languages certainly share a lot of
common features (dynamically typed, garbage-collected, first-class
functions, objects are dictionaries...). I've caught myself
introducing people to the language with something like, "It's very

system," on more than one occasion. And as Elias says, it's also got a
strong metaphorical truth to it.
