Anyone who has done a language change on a project knows that it is a huge disruption. You need solid justification to make such a change. All I have seen in this thread is personal opinion. Since this is a personal opinion exchange, I am of the humble opinion that the personal opinions of core devs matter the most, since a language change would affect them more than anyone else.

Okay lets try to discuss one by one:
- Readability - less code, most code is hidden by abstraction without losing performance
In CPython code lots of stuff like Py_INCREF, Py_DECREF .. it could be fixed with C++ std::shared_ptr<> (RustPython use analog Arc<>)
So every single python extension library would have to be rewritten to handle all the new C++ apis? Sounds like an idea everyone will be very excited about.
