A very emotional appeal, you don't seem to grasp the usability improvements this will give. I hear you but at this point appeals to Python's "Zen" don't help you.
I have to admit, in half-following this discussion I've swung between thinking "there's no way this is actually going to happen" and "what, this might actually happen?"
Since it now looks like it really does have a decent chance, and maybe another -1 has a small chance of tipping the balance: my reaction to the proposal is also emotional. Visceral, in fact, to the extent that I'd aim to read and write less Python if it became commonplace.
I don't have arguments. I just have an instinctive "ugh, no".
