I don't know. What is it? I'm sure your code is the most fabulous, 
awesome and brilliant thing since Grace Hopper came up with FORmula 
TRANslation back in the 1950s, but my browser has over eighty tabs open 
at the moment, give me a reason why I ought to open one more.

If you aren't willing or able to spend a sentence or three explaining 
what your code does, what need it fulfils, and why it ought to be 
included in Python, you're going to have real bad time trying to persuade 
the hard-nosed, conservative core developers. Trust me, I know what I am 
talking about, I am the author of a successful PEP:


and that was for something which already had at least two of the most 
respected core developers' support before I even started. So before you 
go to the effort of writing a PEP, how about you try to justify your 
proposal here?
