I'm not sure how to put it differently than I have in the PEP or the email: I proposed they use ? instead of _ and also apply that to regular unpacking (because it is very easy to see pattern matching as an extension of unpacking assignment), and (besides other disagreements) they were uncomfortable including non-pattern-matching proposals in their PEP. This PEP covers the non-pattern-matching uses of '?'.
OK, fair. In which case, I'll probably wait for the revised pattern matching PEP, but I expect to be -1 on using ? there as well. I was fine with _ and the special rule TBH. Paul
