I'm glad to have many comments like this in support of this PEP. Thanks, everyone!
As I understand things, you should finish the implementation, post it to PyPI, and get people to use and test it, (all of which require no approvals).
Sure, but before I “finish” the implementation, I want to reach consensus on the suitability of the proposed API. To quote PEP 1:
It is better to finish the specification and rationale first and reach consensus on it before writing code.
When stable, propose it for the stdlib along with a credible promise to maintain it for at least 3 years.
My intention is to continue supporting this code after inclusion in the standard library, yes.
