project, and this effectively means that if you really want to get
something done, specially when almost no one seems interested, you *do*
have to DoItYourself(tm). But I *really* doubt it'll make it Python anyway.
IOW : if you want access restrictions in Python, fork the project and do
what you want with your fork (as long as you respect the Python licence
