There are far more responses for that topic than I imagined so I would love to write a PEP about that topic, incorporating the ideas/questions and suggestions discussed here.
Instead of going straight to a PEP, I recommend opening a new wiki page on the topic, letting people post sample pure python implementations, pros/cons of various APIs, showing sample use cases, and analyzing the O(n) behavior of various implementation strategies.
That sounds reasonable. I'm +1 in principle, but would like to see the details thrashed out.
BTW, as a meta-question, where is this proposal targeted for? I'd assume 2.6/3.0 are closed now, as we're hitting betas - so are we looking at 2.7/3.1? (Just a quick sanity check on the timing...)
