   I think the sentence "Python should have <some big and complex to
implement feature>" should be ;-) forbidden if it is not followed with
"I'm in the middle of development. Expect the 1st PR in <a short timeframe>."

   Python can only have features that You, the <User>, implemented (or
paid for) and submitted.
