Rather than wait for general agreement, since this thread is probably 
widely muted already, I'll put a PEP together to clearly set out what 
I'm envisioning here in a form we can directly discuss. But time is 
precious, so don't expect it this week :)

(Also, on Brett's advice, this belongs on python-dev and not 
core-workflow right now.)
