Well, I'm off sunseeking in a week; I'd hope it can get it done by then.

Hmm. While I agree that 'or'ing is the best thing to do by default,
it would be nice if there was some way of requesting a blank starting
point (this is the other unresolved issue in PEP 236, after all).
Maybe it's not worth it.

It's not done yet (and I thought this was a dead simple change!).
I've uploaded a new patch, which takes Tim's suggestion of using the
_Feature objects and runs with it. I'd appreciate it if you and Tim
could cast an eye over it - if you think the apprach is sound then
I'll update my PEP and draft some changes to 236.
Presumably pronging in the wrong place zogs it.
