[Python-ideas] Proposal: Moratorium on Python language changes

Please forgive me if anything I say has already been mentioned.  I am
certainly in support of a moratorium on Python core and switch the focus to
Python libraries.  I'm sure others have noticed that as of late many
proposals have been of lower quality or are the same old ideas that keep
getting requested.

My only concern would be that the technology field is always changing and
some great new technologies may come up during the moratorium.  To alleviate
this concern I propose that the primary Python core developers either meet
once a year, or at the halfway point of the moratorium.  They would then
discuss whether or not any changes within the field are major enough to
warrant a change within Python core.

With these meetings we would be able to ensure that the Python core is only
worked on if absolutely necessary, leaving us free to concentrate on library
