Guido and I had a brief discussion about this.  IIRC, he was thinking
alpha around March and release around summer.  I think this is
aggressive with all the things still to do.  We really need to get the
ssize_t branch integrated.

There are a bunch of PEPs that have been accepted (or close), but not
implemented.  I think these include (please correct me, so we can get
a good list):


 SA  308  Conditional Expressions
 SA  328  Imports: Multi-Line and Absolute/Relative
 SA  342  Coroutines via Enhanced Generators
 S   343  The "with" Statement
 S   353  Using ssize_t as the index type

This one should be marked as final I believe:

  SA  341  Unifying try-except and try-finally
