I get that str.strip() needs some work. However, for the time being (and to ensure backwards compatibility) surely re.sub() is a solid choice for some of the use cases you guys are discussed no?

I think the methodology for the calculation of language popularity is specifically under representative of both R and python. if you check out trends for dplyr (R) or pandas (python) packages for data manipulation, both dwarf the overall language specific searches. I wonder if that bias also partially led to the declining interest in Ruby on Rails.
