If suites were commonly used as above to define properties, event handlers and other callbacks, then I think most people would be able to comprehend what the first example above is doing much more quickly than the second.
wonderful logic, there. good luck with your future adventures in language design.
I'm just trying to help python improve. Maybe I'm not doing a very good job, I don't know. Either way, there's no need to be rude.
If I've broken some sort of unspoken code of behavior for this list, then maybe it would be easier if you just 'spoke' it (perhaps in a private email or in the description of this list on python.org).
I'm not sure what your point is exactly. Are you saying that any language feature that needs to be commonly used to be comprehendible will never be comprehendible because it will never be commonly used? If so, then I do not think you have a valid point. I never claimed that keyword suites *need* to be commonly used to be comprehendible. I only said that if they were commonly used they would be more comprehendible than the alternative. I happen to also believe that seeing them once or twice is enough to make them about equally as comprehendible as the alternative.
