Are you sure? Could you point me to the relevant messages where mixins 
are mentioned as a key part of the proposal? All I could find are 
message using the @decorator syntaxes.

We've been working with mixins successfully for years now and I can tell 
you that it's "just" a clever way of refactoring existing code in order 
to make it more accessible to other modules *based on use-cases*.

So, the best person to tell what pieces to factor out would be Stephan 
using his 4-point list.
And of course other people using NamedTuple but frequently refactoring 
to "attr" or own class because NamedTuple just is too much (defines too 
much implicitly).

Another benefit is that NamedTuple itself would become a mere set of 
base class and mixins.

Who's writing it?
