I'm also in support of this PEP, and have cases in which I would use
the new singletons.

The biggest reason I believe the PEP should be accepted is that you
simply *can't* "roll your own" in a heterogenous environment.  If I
have my Min/Max objects and you have your Min/Max objects, someone's
objects simply aren't going to work as expected.

I'm in favor of Minimum and Maximum, though, if only for ease in
discussing Python: the capital isn't obvious both verbally or at the
beginning of a properly written sentence.
