I don't think any change should be made unless we agree that there is a real problem to be solved rather than because the OP is brazenly insistent on forcing through some change.  We shouldn't feel shoved into altering something that we don't agree is broken and into replacing it with something that we're less sure about.  Also, I'm concerned that that patch drops features like the post-addition of a constant and incorporating length signature -- it is as if we're starting from scratch rather than keeping the incremental improvements made over decades.  AFAICT, the only motivation for change is that the OP is relentless; otherwise, none of us would be giving this further thought.  I echo Eric's concern that it is easy to inadvertently make Python worse.
