+1 for the moratorium during the life of 3.2.
+0.5 for 3.3.
-1 for the reason. In my no so humble opinion the moratorium is a
benefit for the language, the implementation (CPython), the developers and
the users (software developers that use CPython). If alternative
implementations see their benefits - well, good for them.

Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
