Anyone can submit a patch at bugs.python.org. The process of getting one 
approved includes responding to questions, suggestions, and criticisms. 
Beyond that, the process may be short if the patch is simple and 
non-controversial. Others may take extensive discussion on pydev or 
other forums. Some are ignored or rejected.

One can also participate by commenting on issues started by others. See
for more.

This particular issue would probably require more discussion than less. 
However, submission of a patch using one approach would tend to push the 
discussion to happen.
