[Python-Dev] Scope, not context? (was Re: PEP 550 v3 naming)

I think the issue with sys.std* is a distraction for this discussion. The
issue also seems overstated, and I wouldn't want to change it. The ability
to set these is mostly used in small programs that are also
single-threaded. Libraries should never mess with them -- it's easy to
explicitly pass an output file around, and for errors you should use
logging or in a pinch you can write to sys.stderr, but you shouldn't set it.
