That type of attitude is only going to get people offside. None of these
python experts have time to cater to your specific desires - most don't have
time to cater to their own. If you want it done, you will either need to do
it yourself, or pay someone else to do it.

Python is not developed by a major software company. And most programming
environments have considerably larger runtimes - for a *really* bad example,
look at Java. Perl is similar in size with its standard library to Python.
