This is a trollish exaggeration.

More trollishness.  Python does not have 'commands'.

Feature additions are independent of the changes make in 3.0.  2.7 got 
many new features, and even now is getting a few new security features.

One cannot have opinions about something they do not think of.

If you want to propose a new feature, just do that.  Describe a use case 
and how the feature would look, using current Python syntax, and how it 
would operate.
