I think it must be because people feel that since it's trivial to do, it
must be trivial to add to the core language/library.
This is why I stick with investigating *hard* things ... it convinces me
to greatly restrict what things I suggest (autosuper is nice, but it's
proving difficult to implement efficiently without going beyond pure
python code ... or using lots of extra memory).
