Without an implementation, how can you possibly predict the cost of it?
You're right. Please provide code.
I think that should be up to some person who actually wants delayed evaluation of default arguments. As I've said repeatedly in the past, I'm a very strong -1 on removing the current behaviour, and +0 on allowing delayed evaluation of defaults as an optional feature. But since so many people want it, if the Python-Dev team decide to add it to the language I will need to live with whatever syntax is chosen. -- Steven D'Aprano
