On that subject, I'd like to thank everyone involved in the
python-ideas discussion, and particularly Steven D'Aprano, Rob Cliffe,
and Andrew Barnert; it was an amazingly productive thread, getting to
nearly four hundred emails before seriously meandering. And even then,
it mostly just started looping back on itself, which isn't surprising
given that it was so long - anyone not majorly invested in the topic
won't have read every single post.
