[Python-Dev] PEP 557: Data Classes

- record


This really does match well with the record concept in databases, and most
people are familiar with that. Though it will. E a touch confusing until
(if ever) most of the database and cab traders, etc start using them.

It also matches pretty well with numpy "record arrays":


- bag

I also like this -- not many folks will have a ore-conceived notion of what
it is.

- declarative

Yeach-- that's an adjective (at least on most common use) -- and a
programming term that means something else.

Also, considering their uses, it might make sense to put them in the
collections module.
