In that regard, as of 3.9, CPython, has absolutely atrocious REPL support for its own syntax. It's just barely possible at all to type multi-line statement, but doing that as painful as hell, and after typing, editing is not possible.
It's absolutely a SHAME that CPython has REPL like that, and you need to install 3rd-party tools to get basic workable REPL. Such situation with REPL *alone* is a good reason to want braces syntax :-D.

Well, I don't write PEPs. I write "pseudoPEPs". Wrote 2 so far: "+=" operator for io.BytesIO/StringIO and "Strict Mode, part1". More recently, I'm trying to rebrand those as "PycoEPs", for my Pycopy dialect.
Can you discuss them on pycopy-ideas then?
No, we first would need to discuss that idea on python-ideas-ideas list.
