Following up on a conversation on python-dev from last December:
I'm pleased to announced PEP 436, proposing Argument Clinic for adoption
into the CPython source tree.
Argument Clinic itself hasn't changed much in the intervening three
months; I did add a prototype extension mechanism for adding user types
at runtime, and I allow writing the generated code to a separate file.
The PEP is adopted out of the "clinic.txt" included with the prototype,
updated and with a new rationale.
For what it's worth, the bug tracker issue is here:
I'm guessing python-dev is the right place for the ten-thousand-foot
view topics: the merits of the specific proposed DSL syntax, the
possible runtime extension API, and the approach as a whole. So for now
let's just use the bug tracker issue for code reviews and the like.
The prototype implementation is checked in here:
as well as being posted to the above issue on the tracker in patch form.
I look forward to your comments,
