"This PEP proposes a temporary moratorium (suspension) of all changes to
the Python language syntax, semantics, and built-ins for a period of at
least two years from the release of Python 3.1."

Python 3.1 was released June 27th, 2009. We're coming up faster on the
two-year period than we seem to be on a revised WSGI spec. Maybe we
should shoot for a "bytes of a known encoding" type first.
