A point of order: if you're away from a real keyboard/screen, maybe it's
better to wait. The conversation isn't real-time, and you don't win points
by answering first.

We could all be reminded of the goal for StackOverflow: the intent there is
to create a useful artifact. While it's not quite the same for
python-ideas, in the end we're trying to get to insights and (tentative)
decisions, which should be long-lasting. Fewer posts may be better.

NOTE: I'm not picking on you specifically Chris! I see this a lot, and I do
it myself too (and regularly regret it).
