I'm not worried about that in this case. First of all, supporting
pgen shouldn't be too much of an effort (I can see translating it into
Python at some point :-). It could also be degraded into a 3rd party
module. And if we switch to something better, the something better
will probably act as a better replacement for pgen (though with a
different API), coaxing people to upgrade anyway.
