So you mean that will at least last one more year? Not fine.
I wonder if this xturtle.py is a Python feature.
When Vern Ceder did his patch of turtle.py some weeks ago, there arouse a
discussion if a PEP was necessary to change turtle.py and the general
in the discussion then was no. So I thought, that turtle-graphics is some
marginal element in the Python standard distribution. (I thought something
like features get defined in PEPs)
Already now, only one week after publishing it I have some very positive
feedback and people start to use it. So I think there is some demand for
Moreover I think it could also help to convince more teachers to use
a first language.
Could you imagine - downgrading it's 'featureness' - to put it into 2.5.1
or something like this?
I'll have a talk at Europython 2006 on July 5th about xturtle - an
opportunity if sombody feels it's worth discussing it.
