This is not the best place.  My first take would be "This is a great
idea!  But it doesn't need to be in core.  Write it up and post it to

My second would be "there's probably a special interest group (SIG)
mailing list" that's more appropriate.  See https://mail.python.org/;
WebSIG list looks like a good bet.  Third take, try
python-list at python.org and see what the general Python users say.
Many are web developers.

Finally, I am not a web expert, just a long time follower of
discussions on these lists.  If you are really sure this belongs in
the stdlib right now, you could try python-ideas at python.org.  That
list is for proposing and refining new ideas, this one is more for
discussion of stuff that has an implementation in progress and needs

Happy hacking!
