Closures in Python
Python is one of my favorite languages but the lack of proper closures is an obvious sore point. NeelK says they are coming and cites a proposal for Statically Nested Scopes.

Ok, it's too late for Santa to deliver this year, but I'm hoping that the New Year brings true closures to Python (and contrary to a recent thread in comp.lang.python, the language does not have a proper notion of closures).
