I'm just trying to help python improve.  Maybe I'm not doing a very good 
job, I don't know.  Either way, there's no need to be rude.

If I've broken some sort of unspoken code of behavior for this list, then 
maybe it would be easier if you just 'spoke' it (perhaps in a private 
email or in the description of this list on python.org).

I'm not sure what your point is exactly.  Are you saying that any language 
feature that needs to be commonly used to be comprehendible will never be 
comprehendible because it will never be commonly used?  If so, then I do 
not think you have a valid point.  I never claimed that keyword suites 
*need* to be commonly used to be comprehendible.  I only said that if they 
were commonly used they would be more comprehendible than the alternative. 
I happen to also believe that seeing them once or twice is enough to make 
them about equally as comprehendible as the alternative.
