Note that Guido has ruled this form out, in a pretty strong way ("I really
hate this") so if you want to change his mind, you'll need to come up with
arguments as to why he's wrong.
I'm not saying that this isn't possible, more that merely collecting a concensus
vote isn't likely to do much. Strong technical arguments are much more likely
... and a bunch of other posts in the archives.
