And you seem to have 2nd level miss about this miss. I'm not the 1st asking about braces in Python, hundreds of people embraced braces (sorry for the pun) in Python for decades (references are in other messages of this thread). Apparently, they forgot to ask for "acceptance", and accepted it themselves.
The problem? There's high duplication of effort in that area, and the same implementation bugs are repeated again and again. So the question is whether someone who did it, tried to spec out what they did, what is the test process, etc.
So my question to you is: Why raise all these threads on python-ideas that have approximately zero chance of being accepted into the core language? Why not create a new community of Bracey Python people, and build a language and an ecosystem around that?
Is it because you think that you wouldn't get enough people? Because... that would be a good reason not to do it, and a good reason for the core language to continue to not do it.
