Yes of course, but I think GvR was really saying "no", at least not
until a year or so has passed, and only then if lots of users ask for
it. So I won't be submitting a PEP.
I have put a new version (incorporating another implementation idea from
Paul Hankin) on PyPI:
It does not have the all round (theoretically) good performance of my
original version, but does have a much nicer API than my original idea.
