I am just curiously wondering about the plans for introducing function annotations (PEP 3107). I could not find any information about this in the PEP, neither when I searched the mail archives.
Function annotations are a Python 3.0 feature. From what I understand, they have a potential implementation, tests, and documentation. You just have to wait until the Alpha comes out.
Backporting annotations to 2.x was discussed in March (http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-3000/2007-March/006107.html) to generally positive reception. The only possible hiccup would be that annotations wouldn't be supported for tuple parameters, since tuple params won't survive in 3.0 anyway.
