I'm leaning towards the people that oppose addition of this feature to
older Python releases. In particular, the objection that the new PEP is
worthless for a long time to come, is in itself not really relevant:
It is always the case that features proposed by a PEP reach users only
years after they have been implemented.

Well, I really really don't like this idea. 2.7 should not get new
features; users who want new features need to switch to 3.x.
