The people who are posting "show us the code" are mostly folks with
long experience in the PEP process.  I think you should take it as an
indication that in this case the definition of "suitable API" is an
"I'll know it when I've tried it" kind of thing.

What you might find useful is to avoid writing any code yourself, but
see how well your proposed spec fits the existing code, of which
several (potential) examples have been posted.
