I've gotta agree here - I really am quite concerned about all the
cool-but-not-really-necessary stuff being proposed.  I fear that Python
will no longer be the small, simple to understand system that drew many of
us to it in the first place.

OTOH, I have great faith that Guido will simply reject most of these ideas,
regardless of the huge amount of work being spent on their PEPs, etc.  At
least, I _hope_ he does!
