And?  The objection will still be made.  And I doubt Guido will agree
that typing is a precedent that can be used to justify inclusion of
turtle localizations.  He might very well be in favor AFAIK, I just
doubt he would base that on the precedent of typing.

The rest of your post I don't really agree with, but I have no strong
counterarguments, either.  Here I just wanted to point out that the
way these discussions have gone in the past is that without special
support from the BDFL, the usual path for these things is through PyPI.

Especially since AFAICT we don't actually have an implementation yet.
