If so, only into 2.7. Can you please explain why it would be desirable
to do that? 2.7 will likely be the last 2.x release, so only a fairly
small portion of the applications would be actually able to use this (or
any other new feature added to 2.7): most code supporting 2.x will also
have to support 2.6, so the keyword won't be available to such code,
