Do I care enough to write a PEP? No. So this, like many other small ideas, will probably die on the vine.
Yes, this is the real problem. It's simply not compelling enough, even for supporters of the idea, for them to do the necessary work to make it happen.
It is indeed a problem. When a good idea dies because it is simply too hard to get through the hassles of pushing it to a decision, there is a fundamental problem. It's good to have a bit of inertia, so that status quo gets maintained, but at the moment, the extent to which ideas get shot down makes it look as if this list is python-idea-killing.
This keeps happening. All the successful ideas seem to happen elsewhere, notably on typing-sig.
