> What I'm missing is a way to use such an object to actually index/slice something

Sorry, I am not sure I understand what you mean by this? You can pass a slice object, or a tuple of slices in subscript notation.

>>> [1, 2, 3, 4][slice(2)]
[1, 2]

Also, I am not currently subscribed to python-ideas; what is the common practice for posting new threads?
