+1 from me.

While I completely understand Bob and Thomas wanting this for PyObjC and 
ctypes, respectively, I don't want to rush this.  And I don't think this 
is going to suffer from being pushed off indefinitely since enough 
people want this feature.  If you need more time to consider how Java 
handles it, then take it.  You are BDFL for a reason; your gut feeling 
tends be right in the end.

But if you decide not to wait and put in 2.4, I'm +1 on your syntax; as 
I said before, your gut tends to be right.
