"Time and comments" is why I'm posting a discussion thread here and
waiting for responses. There are currently 34517 packages on PyPI. A new
34518th one won't magically get a lot of attention :-)

(for example, I got very few comments when posting pathlib on PyPI -
despite making several actual releases there -, compared to what I got
from the PEP 428 discussion on python-ideas)
