It's not.  Most such repetition is due to new people who have not read
the last 20 years of archives. :-)  (In case the smiley isn't clear
enough, parse that as "all the new people who aren't cray-cray".)

That doesn't mean there's nothing to the idea, it just means that
*mere repetition* of certain proposals is only a sign that "great[sic]
minds think alike," while Python development is attracting new people
at a high rate.

Repetition of certain arguments *in the same thread*, on the other
hand, is often a sign that a meeting of minds has not be reached, and
that can be symptomatic of problems (though it's not necessarily an
indication of the necessity of a proposal).
