I agree. Because of the BDFL pronouncement, I cannot reject the patch, but I won't accept it, either. So it seems that this patch will have to sit in the SF tracker until either Guido processes it, or it is withdrawn.
If people want to restart this discussion, I'd like to start back with the following message, rather than simply accepting/rejecting the patch. From the two comments so far, it seems like it's not the patch that needs reviewing, but still the concept.

Sooo should (for 'generator' in objects that claim to be in __builtins__ but aren't),

Basically, I'd like to see them be given a binding somewhere, and have their claimed module agree with that, but am not particular as to where. Option #2 seemed to be rejected last time, and option #1 was given approval, so that's what I wrote a patch for. It sounds like it's getting pretty strong "no" votes this time around, however. Therefore, I would like to suggest option #3, with <newmodule> being, say, 'internals'.
