so keep it here while the details are being hammered out, and move
it over to python-dev when it's time to start working on it (and move
it back if it turns out that it wasn't ready, after all).

after all, lots of 3.X stuff can go into 2.X anyway (especially after 
your pronouncements earlier today), and I think it's better to keep 
code-related activities in one place.

yeah, but there are also plenty of people who want to contribute 
concrete things to Python, but don't have a clue where to start.
the current situation is something of a mess.  I fear that adding
yet another forum will make things even messier.
