No, it's listed in PEP 0 as "open (under consideration for 2.3)". As far as
I know there are no current patches tom implement it, so it's at least
*that* far off inclusion. I was baiting Alex Martelli, one of the PEP's real
fans, at the Conference about how he should write the patches if he likes
the PEP (unlike me, Alex *could* write the patches if he chose to and had
the time). But no result yet ;-)
