I think that’s likely true. While extremely painful for so many of us, I think the end result is a much better PEP, and a much better feature. I was -1 as well, but I’d say I’m a firm +0 now[*]. I like how many of the problematic syntactic and semantic issues have been narrowed and prohibited, and I can see myself using this sparingly. It’s not the first time I’ve found myself in this position with a new Python feature, and it’s one of the reasons I deeply trust Guido’s intuition and sensibilities.
[*] Not that it matters; the PEP is accepted - time to move on! The world won’t end. :)
