Just as a further follow-up on the recommended approach for making
suggestions: for initial concepts like this one, the "python-ideas"
mailing list is the preferred venue. It's intended for initial
validation and refinement of suggestions to see if they're a
reasonable topic for the main development list. Many ideas don't make
it past the python-ideas stage (either because they have too many
problems, they get redirected to a third party PyPI project, or
existing alternatives are pointed out, as happened in this case).
