You are absolutely right in that writing a new parser might not be a bad idea, but it is just soooo close for enabling Python to be used as the DSL language.
You seem to be arguing for this as an enabler for using Python for DSLs in general, but you're really only talking about one particular DSL, i.e. your HDL.
Do you have any evidence that this a single missing piece that will be of great benefit to other DSLs? Or will the next person who wants a DSL be asking for yet another piece of new syntax to support their particular application, etc?
