[snip a bunch of good arguments for including generic objects]

It does sound like there's some support for putting something like this 
into the language.  My feeling is that the right place to start would be 
to put such an object into the collections module.  (If necessary, it 
could get moved to builtins later.)

Is this something a PEP should be written for?
