    You should bring this up on python-dev.

    In Larry's defense, I suggested he bring it here first to try and find
    some common noise from the people with the most experience actually
    using these functions - ie, those people here. My hope was that some
    vague consensus here would offer more ammunition when finally taking it
    to python-dev for consideration (or kill it without taking it there -
    but it's looking good :)

    Cheers,

    Mark
