Thanks for responding!

I opened an issue before posting here: http://bugs.python.org/issue18314

I'd be happy to provide a patch, but I only want to put time into it
if there's a reasonable chance it gets committed. That's why I wanted
to hear if there were any objections, so I don't end up writing,
testing and posting a patch only to end up in quibbles around the
general idea.

I'm new to Python development; would a concrete patch help move this forward?
