You seem to indicate that you're not up to discussing the concepts
implemented by the module and *integrating* them with the Python

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but if the whole point of the PEP
is a take it or leave it decision, then I don't see the point of
discussing it. I'm -1 on adding the module in its current state;
I'd be +1 on integrating the concepts with the Python stdlib.

Hope I'm wrong,
