I don't want put oil in the fire. That said, I wouldn't place to much
faith in the BDFL rejecting those features. Not after this statement:

"- Python 2.0 (a BeOpen PythonLabs release) will start with a beta
 1-2 weeks after 1.6 final is released; we're striving for a short beta
 cycle.  New language features will include list comprehensions, range
 literals, the zip() function, and augmented assignment."
