So far, fiddling with the PEP, I'm on the fence - adding a method to a built-in object type is sort of a grey area (at least in my mind). It depends on if doing so significantly alters the language/syntax.
We have recently added things like float.fromhex() which IMHO shouldn't be blocked by the moratorium (*), although they technically add a method to a built-in.
(*) it is a minor new feature aimed at catching up with some established standard for an exact, non-ambiguous string representation of floats
Okay, so it remains a gray area.
