I'm also getting overloaded by the flood of information in the longer
postings in this thread, compounded by the relatively abstract nature
of the discussion.
Phillip, as you seem to be of the view that your proposal is
relatively small in scope, but wider in implications, maybe you could
write a (pre-)PEP? Formally describing the problem, why the current
solution(s) aren't sufficient, the precise implementation details and
some simple but complete examples, may help people like me understand
the scope of what you're proposing. But *please* keep it concrete -
it's the abstract descriptions that are losing me!
