I don't think growing committer numbers is CPython's #1 problem. CPython
needs *relevant*contributions: Hypothetically speaking, I'd wager that
someone writing an industrial strength concurrent garbage collector is
*far more likely* to share Antoine's attitude.
ALL developer's who fall into that category are being put off by the
current climate on python-dev and python-ideas, and there's no
shortage of other languages to contribute to.
Likewise, I don't think PEPs are the problem either: Python already has
too many features (recently I found myself thinking that C++ is a really
nice small language :).
