Note that I am unwilling to discuss this in the context of any PEP
until/unless I finish my implementation.  There is already a spec for
what I'm doing (Cowlishaw), and I see no point in talking until code is
ready for use.  If someone wants to take over my work, I won't complain;
I've already done the easy work.  ;-)
