[Python-ideas] Consider adding reverse argument to heapq methods.

heapq creates and works with min-heaps.  Currently, the only way to do this 
is to use _heapify_max instead of heapify, heapq._heappop_max instead of 
heapq.heappop, etc.

These methods should be exposed using a reverse keyword argument rather 
than as private methods just like sort.

Best,

Neil
