As someone not familiar with the other lists...why? It's a proposal of
an idea that could use some debate. Isn't this the perfect place?
What's the idea being discussed? AIUI there's no need or request to change the language/stdlib, but maybe I'm misreading. This is a cute showcase of how a class namespace can be used to gather multiple functions together and build a property with them; it already works without any changes. So it's a great thing to discuss, but with no changes being proposed, it's not really an idea for the language. On python-list, there'll be more people, many of whom wouldn't think to hang out here, but could still appreciate (a) this cool way of doing properties, and (b) the more general notion that a decorated class or metaclass can be used for this kind of very powerful namespacing.
Ah, now I understand. I did automatically assume that Greg was proposing adding this to the stdlib or something, but maybe I only assumed that because it was in the list.
