Python-ideas -- Discussions of speculative Python language ideas


About Python-ideas

This list is to contain discussion of speculative language ideas for Python for possible inclusion into the language. If an idea gains traction it can then be discussed and honed to the point of becoming a solid proposal to put to python-dev as appropriate.
