Yup, that's basically what I was proposing in the pre-PEP:

I've let it slide for a bit here, but my intent is to make a patch that 
puts something like the pre-PEP class into the collections module and 
then send in the PEP.  I've been kinda busy recently, and it's not quite 
trivial since Bunch is in Python and currently the collections module is 
in C, but hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have the time.
