I posted this message to comp.lang.python last night.  Alex Martelli
suggested that I post it directly to python-dev.

This seems a good idea, and quite feasible for 2.4 (we do have over
a year before 2.4 is going to be feature-frozen, after all).  I would
suggest you post this proposal directly to Python-dev, though --
here on c.l.py it's too likely to get accidentally overlooked!
