It would be great to have a pause in Python-the-language, so that
CLPython might at the end of the moratorium finally be up to date with
the latest 2.x and 3.x features.

Supporting standard libraries is a bigger challenge, as the ones
written in C need rewriting. Whether or not there is a pause on that
front does not matter too much to that situation.
