And I wish that PEP would propose a different name. (In fact, the
fact that 'with' is slated for a different use should be added to it.)

Yes if it's speculation (like what I would consider "pythonic"). In
this case, I have repeatedly stated exactly what is quoted above as my
preferred use for 'with' in Python 3.0.
