Agreed. I feel relieved to know that the problem is in a PEP, and
that there's a lot of smart people discussing its implementation.
Don't worry, it won't get into Python before there's a minimum
consensus on the solution. Of course, issuing your opinion is
important to define the minimum consensus. ;-)
