Why the rush to even get it into a 2.3 dot release?  Who needs this
functionality so urgently?

If you want it to get in, take the slow route.  Submit (or revise) a
PEP, and take your time.  You're in a big hurry to get it into the
version of Python that's already gone alpha, but I don't think anybody
else sees the point of the urgency.
