Petr obviously has researched all this carefully, but there is
an incentive: _decimal for example takes a speed hit of 20% with
PEP-3121, so it's not implemented.  I suspect that the later PEP
also slows down modules (which does not matter most of the time).

Any new proposal should absolutely include the performance issue.
