> It's interesting to note how this whole -R discussion made very long
threads on python-dev, and python-dev has subsequently ignored (for the
past 6 months!) the fact that their "fix" can be worked around in a matter
of minutes.

No, this issue has no been ignored. Nobody proposed anything to fix this
issue, but we are still working on it (sometimes in private).

In my opinion, we cannot solve this issue without slowing down python. Or I
don't know and secure hash algorithm. I don't really want to
slow down Python for one specific issue whereas there are so many other
ways to DoS a (web) server.

How do other languages (say Perl, Ruby, PHP, Javascript) handle this issue?
