I'd like to take this to bugs.python.org, if only to provide another route to discovering this (very useful) conversation.
That's perfectly OK, and entirely your choice. However, if you do so, I'd hope that you present the dissenting views from this list when you raise the question on b.p.o. Otherwise, you're in effect expecting all the participants here to repeat their comments on bpo, if they want their opinions to be heard, which makes this discussion somewhat irrelevant.
My understanding was that a discussion here is intended to attempt to reach a broad consensus, which could *then* be presented to bpo as a proposal. But that's just my view, and if you prefer not to take that approach then that's fine. Either way, I'll probably say no more on this topic, as it appears that people have their opinions and there's not much movement towards a shared agreement. I don't have the time or inclination to participate on bpo as well, so if you do move the conversation to that forum, I'll not get involved.
