Note that the fact I implemented it doesn't mean I'm +1 on it (witness my
posts on python-list.) In fact, *while implementing it*, I grew from +0 to
-0 and maybe even to a weak -1 (all in 5 minutes :) The enthousiastic
subject of the patch was a weak attempt at 5AM humour, not a venting of an
ancient desire :)
