That was not my intention.
Python has to acquire some more features and evolve.
And I know that good arguments have been made for all what was changed.

What I've noticed is that I believe that the majority of people
contributing to the decisions are not the average python programmer
and therefore more likely to be in favour of things which might
be unnecessary for the average user. I thought this was valuable to
share so you can keep it in mind.

Apard from that I am grateful to the whole python development team
and the community for its good work.
