Thanks for your interest, but as you note this has already been
proposed and rejected (from my personal recollection, more than once).

So the key question is surely, what are you proposing that wasn't
already discussed in previous threads, and why do you think that the
new aspect of your proposal is likely to change Guido's mind?

Sorry to be blunt, but rehashing an already extensively discussed idea
isn't that productive for anyone.
