IMO, heaps are so standard as an algorithm that they belong into the Python library, in some form. It is then the user's choice to use that algorithm or not.
Should this PEP be split in two, then? One for a new "AbstractData" package (that would include the heap algorithm) and one for an update to Queue that would use some algorithm from AbstractData. The latter might not even need a PEP.
