> BTW: Since when do we use type annotations in Python's stdlib ?

Hmm, interesting question!

At a quick grep, it's in a handful of places in the stdlib: asyncio, functools, importlib. The earliest it appeared was in 3.7.0a4.

It's in more places in the test suite, which I think is a closer parallel to this maintainer script in Tools/.

The typing module itself is in the stdlib, so I don't see any obstacle to using it more widely. I imagine the main reason it doesn't appear more widely already is simply that it's new, and most of the stdlib is quite stable.
