[Python-Dev] apparent ruminations on mutable immutables (was:PEP 351, the freeze protocol)

There's a simple solution to all this - write a competing PEP. One of
the two competing PEPs may be accepted.

FWIW, I'm +1 on PEP 351 in general, and -1 on what you've proposed.

PEP 351 is simple to explain, simple to implement and leaves things
under the control of the developer. I think there are still some issues
to be resolved, but the basic premise is exactly what I would want of a
freeze protocol.
