There have probably been about 10 such proposals bandied about over the 
years, mostly on comp.lang.python, which is the more appropriate place for 
speculative proposals such as this.

For some, there is more than 'hisitance'.  If you understood why, as has 
been discussed on c.l.p several times, I doubt you would bother proposing 
such.  I won't repeat them here.  I should hope there is a Python FAQ entry 
on this.
