It's worth considering. I'm estimating it's about 1.5 days' worth of
work. Mainly because, at the same time, I need to teach Clinic to have
separate namespaces for "parser" and "impl" functions. At the same time
I was going to implement a frequently-requested feature, allowing the C
variable storing an argument to have a different name than the actual
And it could be one of those "hey that was easier than I thought"
things. 1.5 days is kind of worst-case. So maybe the best thing would
be to give it a half-day and see if it turned out to be easy.
Of course, If we bring the Derby to a close now-ish (debate going on in
python-committers right now!), then I'll definitely put it off until 3.5.
