I also forgot to mention very important point in the intro: when you read this proposal, please don't think about "CPython". That for sure will send you the wrong vibes. Think about "Python". ;-)
By which you mean "CPython and all other implementations" I assume?
I'm also -1000 on this proposal, even if you just limit it to CPython.
It's not at all clear what prompted this idea, but if you're suggesting "modify Python so we can make it faster" then I'd rather see a prototype implementation that demonstrated both the limitations *and* the improved performance. We shouldn't limit the core language based simply on speculative benefits that some implementation might be able to achieve.
