1. Excellent summary!
2. After the discussions, my personal opinion has settled down as +1 on
retaining the status quo (but welcoming doc patches), +0 on
warning-if-no-break and -1 on the other options.
3. This should probably go in a PEP regardless of the reaction from
python-dev. Rejected PEPs provide a good record of things we have
deliberately decided *not* to do.
