I am not sure. I am not on the python-ideas mailing list, and I am not sure
what adding and maintaining the discussion would entail, or if I would have

committed this patch because it seemed like it would be quick and easy.

I can start the discussion if anyone specifically wants me to, but I don't
want to let anyone down.
