Um, that was tongue-in-cheek. My serious proposal was python-4000, but
python-ideas sounds better to me because it won't eventually outdate

But that's confusing since the 3.0 PEP work is *also* concrete
implementation related (at least in my mind it is supposed to be -- no
proposal will be accepted unless it's clear how it can be
implemented). And there are plenty of developers on python-dev who
prefer to stick to python 2.6 work.
