No, it isn't. You add a decorator, a 'from_' class, and a 'return_'
function, and there you go. (See my previous code sketches here in
early PEP 380 discussions.)
Python frameworks have been doing variations of the same thing (with
varying features and APIs) for at least 7 years now -- even on Python
versions that lack decorators or the ability to return values from
So the main benefit of a PEP for this functionality would be
providing a common implementation/API - and that could be initially
done in the stdlib, without any added syntax support.
