I won't be there either, but my two cents on this particular topic is
that I'd be *really* keen to see two active development branches in
the CPython repo post-3.3 release: "stdlib" and "default"
It would mean that, for the life of 3.3, we'll always have the option
of cutting a new release that *only* updates the standard library,
without touching the interpreter core.
