Hi Ben, and welcome! Is this your first post? I'm afraid I don't 
recognise your name.

I think this discussion belongs on the python-ideas mailing list rather 
than here. Proposals for changes to syntax and functionality are 
normally expected to gather feedback on python-ideas before coming to 
python-dev for final approval or rejection.
